Nexus One, iPhone, Flash

One thing I thought was a great thing about iPhone was the fact that it does not support Flash. Sure, you end up not being able to access a site or two—nothing to shed tears about. But most importantly so much of the content was moving off the flashy crap and onto H.264 and such.

What now scares me with Nexus One is the declared support of Flash 10.1 on the device. This is BAD. Really bad. This is not forward movement at all, this is much more of the dirty underdog trick on Google side. Sure, this may well turn out to be a strong Nexus selling point (not for me, but who knows). But as far as the Web is concerned a—we won't be winners in this one.
