Motorola Devour to launch with Flash support More details have been released on the upcoming Motorola Devour from Verizon, and it appears that the Android device will launch with Adobe Flash Lite, giving the phone the Flash support that no other Android device has had yet, including more expensive brother phone, the Verizon Motorola DROID.
Flash Lite works with Flash 9 content and will work using the built-in browser.

i dont really know if saying its compatible with flash 9 anwsers my question or not: will this device be able to natively run videos from sites like daily motion and youtube and flash games directly from the browser?

I wonder who is behind these very odd and unnatural decisions. You give an unproven, cheap discount device Flash support, yet stiff the multi-million selling device.

Actually that can be a good marketing strategy. If you already have a good market share with the high-end cost devices, then you focus and try to get advantage where you want to gain more share, the mid-entry level.

Indeed, being deceitful is something Verizon is good at, unfortunately.

Lucky, I have to call in each month and get their $1.99 data fee taken off my secondary phone line. Wonder how many millions they are stealing every month from helpless consumers?

I could be wrong but i thought Flash lite is available on most of the smartphones, and it doesn't do much, no video or games work on it...
