Xoom to Ship Without Flash
We’ve just gotten word from AndroidCentral that the Moto Xoom won’t be shipping with Flash 10.1 preinstalled. This might not be a deal-breaker for the average consumer, but it’s still a big oversight. Whether that oversight is on Motorola’s part or Adobe’s, we’ll leave up to you. Either way you slice it, the Xoom won’t have Flash on launch day. However, a statement from Verizon and Adobe tells us that Adobe is working on Flash 10.2, designed for Honeycomb tablets. So in a nutshell, you’re getting the latest and greatest, but you have to wait for it, and you don’t even get to have the old one until then. You’re just stuck without it. The expected release date for Flash 10.2 for the Xoom is “early 2011″, so we’re guessing that means by the end of spring. More on this as it develops. Anyone else think this is a bad move on Moto/Adobe’s part?
