Android Tablet with Adobe Flash, Gunning For iPad

Apple’s iPad tablet has taken the world – actually just the United States so far and then the world on May 10th – by storm with its smooth design, sleek functionality, and of course the Apple brand that everyone has come to love.

But you better believe that with the success of the iPad, there is obvious demand for tablets and so competitors are gearing up and getting ready to jump in the market place with both feet.

Android powered tablet with Adobe Flash

Let’s welcome the Android powered tablet that actually runs Adobe Flash.

I’m of the opinion that Adobe is on a mission to partner with Google – the developers of the Android OS – to ultimately produce the best tablet device on the plant.

How come?

Because Steve Jobs (Apple CEO) wrote a scathing letter about the inefficiencies of Flash, and gave a long drawn out dissertation as to why the iPad and iPhone will not be running Adobe Flash.

According to Steve Jobs, Flash is buggy.

And Adobe has been so offended at this they have actually considered taking legal action against Apple.

So what does this new Android power tablet offer?

Let’s take a look at the video below and see the Android powered device running with Adobe Flash:

    It never ceases to amaze me how these companies sit back and wait for Apple to create a product (see the plethora of iPhone wannabes), then they rush a bunch if mee-too, shamless copycat products to the market. Once again, Apple clearly sets the agenda, and everyone else follows. Utterly ridiculous and embarrasing……

    • iPad Sucker #30,001

      Right. And that's why the much ballyhooed iPhone G4 that showed up on Gizmodo had an LED flash, just like the Google NEXUS One.

      Apple has always been a very closed-minded company. It's their way or the highway. Nothing like spending $700 for the mid-range Wifi iPad, only to find that S. Jobs has blatantly lied about the on-screen touch keyboard. If you want to use the thing other than as a casual device, you need to cough up $69 for a keyboard. Oh, and by the way, don't buy the iPad keyboard dock, because your iPad will tip over if you take your hands off the keyboard. SUPER design THERE, Apple! And let's talk about putting the port in the portrait position only. Too bad if you want to use the dock — another $29 — while watching a movie. It won't stand up in landscape position. EXCELLENT design there, Apple! And the $39 for the miserable iPad cover that feels like a nasty cross between microfiber and plastic? Need to buy THAT if you actually WANT the iPad to stand up in portrait position. Want to actually project your Keynote presentation using a projector? That'll be another $29…and don't try to run a movie you purchased from iTunes on that projector. It's blocked: more DRM.

      Apple's agenda is "let's milk our customers for every dime that we can, then refuse to support the device 3 years down the road". Yep, the original iPhone will not be supported after the next generation's release.

  • I'll buy anything that's not Apple, simply because I dont like all their self righteous fanboys. There's nothing wrong with being second to the market if you offer a superior product. I love my Droid phone, espically with the latest update. It's better on the battery than my roomates iPhone. Also, with the ever growing selection of apps coming to the Android OS, I dont see the iPhone maintaining it's position for long. Long live open source OS's and markets free from a morally superior overlord!

    Flash has become a burden to design with. RIP Flash! And Goggle has no design sense! The google android phone has a crappy user interface, any tablet they design will most likely have the same crappy ui. Apples ui on the iPad is elegant period! Note to Adobe, start designing programs for designers, I don't want to be a programmer!
