Palm Pre the FIRST PHONE IN THE WORLD WITH FLASH!!

MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHA

ok.

enough of that.

But I am pretty excited that the Pre will be the first phone in the world to offer Adobe Flash 10. It will get it tomorrow.

suckas.

(actually - android will get it at some point.. as will windows 7 phone, and possibly blackberry now they are going to get a real browser.. but for now, the Pre rules the world.)

The bigger point here is that phones will soon be able to run the full internet - something they got half-way towards with webkit browsers (what runs in WebOS, iPhone OS, and Android - the only three really capable of browsing the web), but finally with full flash support you will be able to access anything on the web. Millions of flash games, online apps, stock trading sites, banking sites, youtube, any millions of variations on maps and tools and utilities etc etc. It is, to a certain degree, possibly also the death of the app? I think the "app" - may have had its day? Not totally sure on that one, but I will certainly be using flash games. Castle crushers, here I come.

Oh yeah - but if you have an iPhone, Apple decided to keep screwing you and never support flash. So yeah... you probably wont notice because you will be too busy waving it around at starbucks or blabbering about how amazing paying $110/mo the phone is.. but no flash tasty goodness for you.
