    Yeah if older weaker phones can handle Flash no reason Pixi couldn't. But if we're not getting the same stuff in webOS 1.4 as Pre then lets hope they give us at least something extra.

    I guess the thing is, can those same old phones handle Flash 10? I still feel like I'm getting jipped but i hope they bring out a scaled back version, or whatever they need to do to port it to the Pixi.

    It's not ready, which is why no one has it right now. No one has said "Pixi will not get Flash"... Be patient

    Flash to me isnt necessarily a deal breaker, i mean the screen size doesnt really compliment flash very well. Second I do think video and games should be included for pixi users, i mean to take a feature like video recording which can be found on the most entry level of phones is quiet lame. And then it would be financially unsmart to not allow games to pixi users because thats more possible app money, which palm could use, more money. I just dont think palm is in a position to screw its customers, for a company wanting to come back as a industry leader.

    I'll settle for better memory management & less lag when interacting with multiple cards. Regardless, smartphones aren't (quite) ready to handle flash in a satisfactory manner - hence the beta tag - And suffering flash advertisements...? No thank you.

    I'm sorry, where has it been expressly said that the Pixi won't get flash?

    I have to agree with all the level-headed pixi users that posted on this thread. The pixi will just need to wait a bit more than the Pre. Btw that PCMag says it all.. Pixi is later, Pre is now. Flash beta on Pre.. maybe final release with Pixi included.

    If u guys remember the 1.3.5 update, it provided two different graphic core updates - one for the OMAP Cortex and other was for plain jane-opengl (if i remember correctly)? Im not sure if the Flash 10.1 is utilizing any similar traits as the 3D games side with the graphic core coding...
    Most of these new 3d games are utilizing the newer OMAP PowerVR driven graphic core.. I may be completely wrong since im not a developer or anything but I think highly likely. But remember that Iphone 3G and the newer 3GS both use PowerVR type GPUs (with the 3GS using a newer version with support for openGl 2.0).

    Also it is correct that the Pixi is using a ARMv6 class processor (Qualcomm MSM7627) just like the Iphone 3G (armv6) but you need to also note that the GPU the Pixi is utilizing is something newer and compatible with Open GL 2.0 (just like the Pre/Iphone 3GS but not PowerVR). It is only a matter of time before Pixi should get some Flash and 3d game capabilities with its own dedicated GPU and coding.

    .. Ok Iphone 3g run on ARMv6 (Samsung 1176JZ(F)-S with dedicated GPU PowerVR. Mostly all the 3D games and apps on Iphone 3GS runs on the Iphone 3G because the GPU and graphics coding is for PowerVR (they didn't have to change anything.) And this goes back to the new 3D games for the Pre.. Pre uses the same PowerVR GPU as the Iphone 3GS and developers probably didn't have to change much..

    So Pre has two nutts.. pixi has 1?? LOL..
