So in the near future Chrome may be the only Linux browser with Flash support

webOS: the mobile OS that could…. but didn’t. It still has a chance with it being open sourced and perhaps HTC will pick it up as they seem to be losing out to Samsung on the Android front

APP INCOMPATIBILITY About half of the apps I tried to install from the Amazon Market failed with the message “The package appears to be corrupt.” The issue appears to be that most apps are coded to expect support from an ARM-based processor, not a MIPS-based processor. Common apps like 1Password, Angry Birds (not the pre-installed MIPS-compatible version), Fruit Ninja, Flixter, Rdio, Retro Camera, Skype, SwiftKey X, and more wouldn’t work on the Novo7 Basic. At all.

This is an interesting and disturbing issue for Android. Wills apps really be compatible with other architectures in the future?
