Default Motorola is Seriously Screwing Up The Xoom

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://gizmodo.com/#!5766073/motorola-xoom-tablet-wont-have-flash-at-launch' target='_blank'>http://gizmodo.com/#!5766073/motoro...flash-at-launch</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Some disappointing news for those awaiting the arrival of Motorola's tablet: its new page on Verizon's site suggests it won't have Flash at launch. A bit of tiny text on the product page says "Adobe Flash expected Spring 2011," presumably meaning that Moto's waiting for Adobe to roll out the mobile-optimized Flash 10.2 before supporting it."</em></p><p><em></em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1298513253.usr7.jpg" /></p><p>OK, so let me get this straight. The Xoom is going to cost a bunch of money ($800, <a href="http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Mobile-and-Wireless/Motorolas-Xoom-Tablets-800-Cost-10-Reasons-Its-Overpriced-420699/" target="_blank">it isn't worth it</a>), it's WiFi is going to be locked down until you pony up the <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/02/06/verizon-locking-wifi-on-motorola-xoom-until-you-buy-one-month-of/" target="_blank">activation money</a>, and now we learn that one of the geekly talking points of Android, Flash, it doesn't have. Motorola, take a hint, you really don't do upscale consumer devices well anymore. Stick to feature phones.</p>
