    I love everything about my new Droid but am somewhat sad that contrary to a lot of previews theres no Flash Lite.

    I know Froyo is (theoretically) only a month or so away, but I'm still saddened that theres no watching videos and gaming for now.

    Two different things. ;)


    Flashlight = bulb that illuminates

    Flash Lite = smaller version of Flash for computers (used for videos and gaming)

    Yea, it's for 2.2 or higher, but it's worth a try.

    Needs Sense UI to work and if 2.1 with Sense, it is a placebo (no better function and actually makes stock browser perform worse with Flash).

    Full Flash needs resources from Froyo.

    If videos are what you want, Skyfire does a great job in converting and playing Flash vids. No games though.

    Can't understand why MOTO didn't just put lite until Froyo is released. Especially when its chief competition has it.

    Flash Lite 4 uses resources from Sense. XDA have tried to get it to work on non Sense devices but could not get it to work. Moto would have had to work with Adobe to get their own version for 2.1.

    Summary:

    Flash Lite 4 must have Sense and 2.1

    Full Flash beta 3 must have Froyo or Sense 2.1, but pointless (on 2.1), since works no better (but worse) than Lite on Sense 2.1.

    Cool! :)

    As Bonez says, get Skyfire, since it plays most video BETTER than Flash 10.1 and works with a lot more sites.

    Flash 10.1 will be kind of weak until GPU support is finally added. No games with Skyfire, but not many have been adapted to touch-only yet. No harm, no foul.

    Flash Lite isn't really that useful anyway. Some videos play fine, but a lot of content and games are slow.

    I can wait for 2.2. Of course it would be nice to get my phone, which I am not sure of, now, having not received my tracking notice. :(

    Probably because they want to incorporate any fixes that the phone might need in a single patch.
