Xoom Will Launch Without Flash
Motorola's Xoom tablet will be missing one of the key differentiators between itself and the iPad when it launches this month. The device will not run Flash when it launches, with the functionality arriving in the spring, according to a Verizon ad cited by Apple Insider.
The Xoom is advertised as "fully Flash-enabled for video-rich web," although the ad also states that Flash will arrive in Spring 2011. The delay is an indication that Android 3.0, also known as Honeycomb, is not yet able to run Flash.
