It wouldn't be worth anything if it did. All apps I have seen thus far in iOS have no folder browsing capabilities, so you wouldn't be able to navigate directories anyways. All files are handled by the apps.

That's the biggest problem I have with iOS tbh. That and the "multitasking" isn't true multitasking. Apps (minus sound) don't really run in the background. They're just kept in memory. Of course, jailbreaking fixes the file/folder navigation issue. I can SSH into my iPod touch or I can browse/edit files via iFile.

What do you mean keep buying. I still have my first cable that came with my 3g. And I'm using it with my iPhone 4. And the new one that came with the 4 is still in the box.

I've had an iphone for a few months now and I can honestly say I haven't missed flash. I got to flash sites all the time and they all seem to have HTML5 or other work around in place. When I first trialed an iphone I really thought the lack of flash would be an issue (coming from a flash enabled Nokia).

Besides, if Flash is so good how come most of us run flash blockers ::

because then you wouldn't have to buy an adapter.

I could really use one for work. I know how that sounds but they make really good presentations when I am trying to sell. Much better than my 15" laptop.

I think I will wait to see what Asus puts out on android. I also want to play with the new HP/Palm tablet this spring. I really like webOS on my phone.

There's some new deal for $529 or something at Sam's or Costco.

Google it, I think it's still active.

My friend got his on Thursday and I have to say, Honeycomb is quite nice. The interface is butter-smooth and the widgets are pretty sweet. The form-factor is also not bad, smaller than I thought it would be.

He mentioned the OS is still a work in progress, as it is the first release for Honeycomb, but overall he liked it a lot better than his rooted 2.3.2 on his Evo.

The browser was also quite nice but, I have to say, I am definitely looking forward to the new update with Flash enabled.

-edit-

Here's the link I saw online for the pricing

After several months of having Flash on my Droid Incredible, all of my worries about it have come true. It makes the browsing experience miserable on any site that uses it.

Of course, on Android I have the ability to disable things I dislike.

The iPad 2 looks incredible. If I had a need for that form factor, that would be the device I would own.
