    Lack of Flash support in the browser is going to severely hamper the utility of the web browsing experience. This is not going to be able to produce a "stand-alone" device. Access to a computer that allows full web browsing will always be needed as long as Flash technology is omitted from the build.

    It will be better than a WAP browser but will still suffer from incomplete page renders and loss of site function to the extent each site depends on Flash technology. The Nokia N900 shows that it is possible to include flash in a reasonably size handheld device. This seems like an "Onward to the Past!" sort of decision .

    This phone actually, is way over-rated I kind of hate it and was satisfied with my G1 more than I am with this bs. Too many reasons to list.

    Enjoyment, free of charge games for a calmer auto tour..Long car trips with bored small children on the back seat can be unpleasant for everyone. Why not give these great old school family games a go? We’ve all been there. You haven’t loaded plenty of kids toys for the long car voyage forward, the children have unexpectedly got sick and tired of the whole thing and the iPad’s battery has just simply died. But don’t give up hope! You don’t have anything to play a couple of rounds of entertaining quizzes and games. Everyone could get involved and you may even make use of a brain-boosting memory game or two. Pick-a-picnic, Zoo quiz, Theme song sing-along, Animal name mania, Secret map quest.

    Teachers should adopt different approaches to make learning effective and healthy. They should adopt pedagogy through which students can keenly interest in learning lessons. They should have an art to keep students active in class.
