Flash is going to be about a three week wait for Honeycomb. Its not the end of the world. Adobe didn't give up on anything seeing Flash is used on every Android phone running Froyo.
The reason Honeycomb doesn't have Flash yet is because they ar going with 10.2 not 10.1
Also everyone acts as if they are being force to use Flash. For those on Android that don't want to sue Flash you simply don't install the plugin. Apple not allowing Flash is nothing more then Steve Jobs controlling content.
Flash is a plugin if you want it then you the end user install it, if you don't you never have to install it on your system. Also on your mobile you can set flash for " on demand" so you can activate it only when you want to use it, you don't have to use it on ever website.
It works rather well.
it works ok on desktop/laptop with a good broadband connection, let's get that straight. It only works rather well offline, on a cd/dvd media (even that degrades the performance since the drive has to spin the disk up) or locally. If you have used on an older computer or one with a slower connection, "works" rather well is not the phrase i would use.
Mobile-wise, it's even worse. It is why Adobe had a big glass of STFU and sat down. You ignored the crux of my point. Flash is NOT DESIGNED around TOUCH Input. it has 4 button on(states): Up, Over, Down, and Hit. Guess with a touch-based system, you only have HITS, and then there are the gestures. Tell me how you have an over state with your finger and the screen/software recognize it? You do realize even a kindergartener understands the difference between TOUCH input, and STYLUS/MOUSE input which have buttons to CLICK on them. How do you click your finger?
What's worse have you seen most flash sites? Tiny buttons, text that you have to scale manually many x's to actually engage the HIt area if it all. With a mouse you a precision target position, it is a moot point. Most flash sites will have to be totally redone to incorporate a larger area to put your fingers, unless the site already has huge buttons and large interaction Hit areas.
Why do you think the companies that use Flash either have completely made an entire new flash with HTML 5, or they have made a mobile site. You think companies that drop hundreds of thousands, possibly millions on an online media campaigns likes directing you to their lame mobile site? You think a company would never try to use their flash site on their mobile platform to see how it works?
