Motorola Xoom Tablet Won't Have Flash at Launch

Illustration for article titled Motorola Xoom Tablet Won't Have Flash at Launch

Some disappointing news for those awaiting the arrival of Motorola's tablet: its new page on Verizon's site suggests it won't have Flash at launch. A bit of tiny text on the product page says "Adobe Flash expected Spring 2011," presumably meaning that Moto's waiting for Adobe to roll out the mobile-optimized Flash 10.2 before supporting it. So there's one edge the Xoom had over the iPad that it actually won't have, though that groundhog did see its shadow (and Adobe has suggested that Flash 10.2 will arrive in just a few weeks), meaning that Xoom owners probably won't be Flash-less for too long.

No great loss here... you'll just keep better battery life and avoid ads is all. Don't let that stop you from buying this overpriced unit.
