Steve Jobs was right in his open letter to Adobe, they could never get it to work without sucking the life out of the battery or without performance issues(not always). I’m however surprised that they’ve made this decision so soon in the game especially since some marketing campaigns mention “The full web” because their tablet or phone includes flash. I wonder how this was taken at Google and what lengths if any were taken by them to prolong Flash on Android.
This paves the way for HTML5 now, it’s full steam ahead (not that it wasn’t the case) which is a good thing. Though some of the issues that Flash had are still noticeable with HTML5 such as the fact that it also can be CPU intensive and a memory hog. But at least it’s the new universal native standard.
