Since the launch of the Apple iPhone there have been more than 7 million download attempts for flash by the smartphone users. The demand by millions shows no sign of slowing and that number is sure to increase with the release of the new iPad device.
It is no secret that iPhone users are missing out on Adobe Flash, we had hoped that Apple would come to an agreement by the time the new iPad and iPhone 4G are released, but that is not looking likely. We recently reported on an article asking if the Apple iPad and iPhone 4G would fail without flash?
According to PC World, Steve Jobs recently said that Flash was slow and full of bugs, which is why Apple was backing HTML 5. This is not something that iPhone users agree with, and these 7 million download attempts of the Flash Player proves just that.
However, Apple could be helping us in a strange way, if we did have Flash on our iPhone or the new iPad then just imagine how much bandwidth you would use. There will be so many users going over their monthly limits, as well as the fact that AT&T cannot handle the load as it is.
