If you own an iPhone (I have 2, not the 3GS). You will never get FLASH.
It takes gaming revenue away from Apple.
If you own an iPhone. You will never get any Video that is FREE.
It takes Movie & TV revenue away from Apple.
Both are Free if you really have the Internet in Your Pocket as the original iPhone was advertised.
But after 2 years they aren't...
Edit. For those that say both drain the battery then why did Apple offer Both Video & Video editing on the phone (4years late) and still not offer true Multi-Tasking?
I'd pick Multi-Tasking over Video given the iPhone interface but that's me. I play Golf and want GPS without my battery or phone burning their contents (1 post from a French site doesn't mean everything is all right).
And for those that don't believe it's true. Try playing golf and using GPS full time for 1, 4 hour round. The original 3G is dead at about the 12th hole and that is with turning off the phone, waiting a minute to get my yardage. My 3G could burn and egg. Yes, it was in Vegas but if the App can't handle the heat or the 3G at the same time then there is a problem with the phone or App. It's ViewTi Golf (it was out well before 3.0 came out). The best golf GPS in the app store. I doubt it's the App. I could finish a full round before 3.0.
First Bug I've had and a Big One for me.
Fully charged phone in the read just after the turn. Wrong...
