I would like to point out that the iPhone has been out for 3 years and there is STILL no released version of full mobile flash. Yes, 10.1 will be available at some point this year, but 3 years? It's no wonder that Apple has put restrictions on the use of middleware for app creation if a company as huge as Adobe take 3 years just to release a plugin. Imagine how long it would take them to implement SDK changes.
You forgot to mention that even when (if) 10.1 comes out, it requires an 800 MHz A8 processor - which is more than any current iPhone or 99% of the phones on the market can handle, so even after the vaunted 10.1 comes out, it STILL won't work on iPhones - no matter what Apple does.
Then, of course, there's the fact that 10.1 beta is reported to be very clunky, slow, and stutters badly.
Just in case anyone missed this on Engadjet re: JooJoo review, as it pertains to Flash in particular:
But what about Flash?
This is supposed to be the big differentiator, right? The iPad killer!
In an interesting move, Fusion Garage coupled the Atom processor with NVIDIA's Ion graphics to aid in playing full screen Flash video (or for doing... something). Unfortunately, the software just isn't there yet. Currently the device is running Flash 10.1 beta 1, and won't have hardware-accelerated Flash video for a good while now (the timing is partly reliant on Adobe support, and is labelled as a "work in progress" by JooJoo). That means some regular-sized YouTube and Hulu works, as decoded by the CPU, but full screen Hulu is jittery, and a 720p YouTube clip is like watching a slideshow. In one of the biggest moves of irony, JooJoo has actually implemented a hack for YouTube where you can view a video in Flash or in "JooJoo" mode which is a straight playback of the MPEG video file every YouTube video harbors. What does this remind us of? HTML 5, albeit with a less elegant implementation. This of course only works on YouTube right now, though JooJoo says it plans on supporting other sites in the future. Watch the video below for yourselves to see all this Flash tragedy play out.
Emphasis added by me.
So how is it the Flash is only Apple's problem again? Seems to me that SJ is just being SJ, and is never going to relinquish control of his company or products to Adobe or any other company... for a PLUGIN!
That's what I've been trying to say throughout this entire conversation, but all the Adobe shills just ignore it.
I say, thanks for making a "The Stand" against waiting for Flash and Adobe!
"Relient on Adobe my A**"
PS. I realize that this review of the JooJoo was before recent revisions of Flash 10.2 or Gala, or whatever Adobe is trying to call it now. Why do I think that the results will still be the same?
I don't know what impact it's going to have on an Atom processor, but Engadget tested it on i5 and i7 MacBook Pros. On the i5, the new version was actually SLOWER than the old one. On the i7, it was better, but still required 50% CPU time to show a video - which is supposed to be done on the GPU.
One step forward, two steps back.
