  1. It seems that one of Android's key advantages over iOS -- or at least the one that manufacturers are always so happy to point out -- will be missing from Motorola's upcoming Xoom tablet at launch. According to a product page posted by Verizon on its website, the Xoom's Flash support is "expected Spring 2011", and not when the tablet goes on sale on this coming February 24.

    Epic fail! Not only is it overpriced. But now it cant even out do the ipad which its priced higher than? Isnt the point of a tablet mainly to make mobile web browsing convenient, but it cant even do that better than the lower priced ipad. By the time it can, the new ipad will be out which will either be equally priced or lower, and grab all the attention away.

    HAHA I knew it was to good to be true. Why even release it then....or drop the price by 50% and it might have a chance.

    Companies putting market share and deadlines ahead of a finished product? No way!

    Well that just about ruins whatever out of the box competitive advantage it had in the 'mass-appeal' department.

    Heh. I saw its commercial during the superbowl and thought "thats the iPad2" then I saw it wasn't and was like "wow!". Then a couple weeks ago I saw the high price point and was less impressed, now I see it won't even do Flash?
