  • Mobiles will have to live without Flash but the desktop removing Flash as well is backwards. Until HTML 5 can do all that Flash can do there will always be a difference between mobile and the desktop. Shockwave is not Flash. It is Shockwave. And yes Shockwave crashes all of the time.
  • that CDMA bit was so discouraging since I am on sprint with the nexus s 4g... still waiting for android 4.0!!! If there is any reason not to get a nexus phone ever again with sprint, this is it.
  • I'm always quite amazed by you guys when it comes to the Google Apps. Android is Open Source, Google is NOT! There's a big difference here, Google has every right to hold their apps hostage to OEMs unless they adhere to certain requirements..... This is exactly like a lot of apps in the market like things from Verizon or anyone else. Google is a developer like any other and their Gmail, Market, Music, Chrome and anything else is purely at their discretion.
