What happened to the promise of getting FLASH 10 LITE on our G1's ???
Come on we NEED FLASH !!!!
What happened to your patience?
Apparently the same thing that happened to his manners...
To the OP: I very much want to have flash working as well. The key word is here is "working". It would be sweet to have Android beat iPhone, Pre & WebOS and the rest of the players, but just as with cupcake, patience is a virtue.
And if you can't wait any longer, go to one of the smart phones that supports flash now...
Lol...I actually found what you said quite hilarious...
And I'm laughing even more now! =P
lol, this was worth the read for the laugh.
I know were that source of info was from !!!
It was in all the major newspapers along side the promises in the 1970's that we would be having carbuerators that could provide our cars with 100/mpg ... in the very near future, if the Big Three did buy the patent and lock it away in a time-capsule to be opened in 2025 ...
What are you? A bunch of ***s lthat like to be bent over? Fight if you want something!!! With a Bunch of Puzz's like you no small wonder these companies could care less about putting out a good product ! Do the search if you want the info I posted. YES its illigal for T-Mobile to lock you down. If you have an argument with your girlfriend and refuse to stop the car for her she can arrest you for UNLAWFUL Restraint, a Class D Felony. Your Americans, so many laws to protect you AND to take your money !
T-mobil MUST remove the look when asked to YET they would not do it for me...
Flash 10 coming to a non-Apple smartphone near you in 2010 - Ars Technica
We should not have to wait. It should already be working on our phones when they came out. I can play FLV videos using the YouTube player yet I can not play FLV from my SD Card. Thats BS..... Its taking too long to get good programs for this phone! And you sit there and tell me to wait? Puzz !
Adobe Flash 10 running on T-Mobile G1 Android Phone
Read between the lines ***s... They are F'n with you. Open phone? Guess again...
"IN REPLY TO SWIZZ"
I do think some people are unnecessarily harsh here. There are some on this forum who think that Android is perfect, without flaws, and should not be criticised as it was made by Google and as know Google can do no wrong. We should live with what we have and not complain. You can say the same about HTC and the hardware..
But these are the same people that will grab the new OS on the day of release, if not before, because they cannot wait for the improvements. Go figure..
If you sit back and say nothing, you'll get what you are given. If you speak up, then those that take notice might prioritise the features you really want - not what they can force down your throat.
That said.... I think that my G1 is awesome, one of the best smartphones on the market and I'm 90% happy with it!
BTW, does the youtube player really play FLV files, or does it get vidoes from the mobile section of youtube?
Oh, that went over my head... Not sure. I did not even know YouTube had a mobile section. I know that my YouTube downloader converts them into MP4 and they play well on the G1 BUT the Video has black lines on each side. Only program I have used to make Vids that fill the whole screen of the G1 is Super...BUT there is a some quality loss.
The bottom line is that I paid $400 usd for a phone that yes I am 90% happy with BUT it was sold to me as "OPEN" and the first problem was dealing with T-Mobile. They would not unlock it even though BY LAW they must AFTER I REQUEST THEM TOO. Then no VOIP, No JAVA Appls, No Video Recording, No Flash etc. You can say its a new phone but why did they not just use whats already out there and get it on the phone before they sell it. I like what ADOBE Said about their Flash 10 Lite... "our product is ready and works, we just need Apple to ask us and then it will be available for the IPHONE". Its not the phones fault it those who are trying to make a Buck off of us ! Once the G1 plays Flash then you will be able to get Flash Programs outside the MARKET....... Maybe SKYPE and other VOIP programs that have a Flash based program ON THEIR WEBSITES will work from here as well. There are peopl blocking us from getting free programs to make a Buck off of us. That's what is going on and these Wimps just let themselves be rolled over by them!
@tiredhiker. If your phone was sold to you as OPEN then it was mis-sold. As Swizz has pointed out again and again the phone is open source. Google it.
@ TIREDHIKER ...
And with the previous poster;s last post, I say to you " GOOD DAY, SIR !!! "
Sorry...but I have to say Swizz is on a roll here....
It's just burn after burn after burn...
He's gotta be fully cooked now...maybe even over-cooked!
Nah. He'll be back for more.
i think he loves the attention ... like a 2 yr tantrum .. does it to get our reactions ... but probably our responses are better than the mama songa he is finding in the bars next to the internet cafe :
So where do I get my gravy boat installed?
You need to root for the gravy boat.
Man, I didn't even know that guy wasn't from the US
I have to agree, it's funny that "it's legal to unlock a phone" suddenly, magically transforms in this man's head to "it's illegal to not unlock it".
Also, Flash 10 lite is Adobe's baby. The baby they'll deliver for FREE. Pardon Adobe if they're a little busy taking care of the products that DO make them money first, and waiting on things that don't. Does any other phone have Flash? My T-Mobile Wing didn't. Watch your porn on your computer, geez.
Yeah, he paid $400 for the phone, but the OS was free. If the OS was for pay (like Windows Mobile) the phone would be more expensive, or skimp on features (like the T-Mobile Wing) so that the price isn't astronomical.
And to the person who said this:
This is not a black and white world. Those of us who aren't foaming at the mouth and demanding this or that feature are not "sitting back and saying nothing" we're just adults who pick and choose when we talk and when we are patient. Constructive criticism and addressing the right party get you a lot farther than screaming at random people on the highway.
Finally, good things come to those who wait. Not everything is the end of the world. Not every problem, inconvenience or gripe needs to be exaggerated into a catastrophe just so you can get things done. This is how a child gets what they want: tantrums. The squeaky wheel may get the grease, but it ain't gonna be primo grease, it's going to be whatever will work to get rid of the squeak, hell it might just be pus from a pimple.
For me, quality is more important than speed. If it takes Adobe another year to release a mobile flash version that is 99% flawless, beautiful, and has a small memory footprint, that'll be just fine.
Too bad more of you will not stand up. The rest of us have to suffer. I will not buy a phone again on Hype & Promise. And yes I am from the USA, CT in fact where its cold and rainy all the time. Which is why I live in "Endless Summer" now...
DUDE FOR CRYING OUTLOUD...listen to what your saying...you are complaining about having a phone that does not do what you want it to do...if you get your wish and have flash 10 right now then you will just start complaining about how it doesn't work. Let it run it's course, it will be here in due time.
Like he said, we are not sitting around waiting for something good to happen, who knows we might even be calling, blogging, emailing or whatever to the right people...nagging on and on about it here more then likely will not get you anywhere. Can we just drop this, although it is very entertaining it is becoming a bore....
