    I am looking to get the t300 but I have read it does not come with flash. Does that mean I can't watch certain website/programs like USA /the suits show.... Let me in on this hang up I have. No espn and stuff like that or having it updated to JB it does "support" flash (able) content

    You should be able to use the last Flash version for ICS. Also, a lot of the custom ROMs come with Flash already added.

    Depends what you want it for. I want mine as a laptop replacement, and with the keyboard and expandable memory it is ideal for that.

    I have tried Firefox, but "flash" is not working.... (like ESPN)
    what to do

    Any Web browser that does flash?

    Perhaps I needs to root and find a ROM that offers flash.... I REALLY NEED IT!

    anyone have thoughts and ideas?

    Hi all,
    Just got the tablet today and the ota jelly bean update.

    I was disappointed that Flash is no more supported, so I came to this thread and dowloaded the apk.
    Unfortunately it seems that the stock web browser gets a forced close every time i try to open a page containing Flash.

    Maybe due to jelly bean ?

    Don't bother with the stock app. Either Dolphin or Chrome are much better and are free from the Play Store. IIRC Dolphin allows you to use flash, not sure about Chrome.

    AFAIK chrome does not support Flash.

    I may give a try to Dolphin or Opera

    I downloaded the apk directly from Adobe web site and now the stock browser is able to show Flash videos, but it is unstable, so I disabled the plug-ins.

    I tried Firefox and it seems ok, so I guess I will use Firefox when I want to see a web site with flash videos
