Flash on webOS Confirmed for February

Palm and SFR held their French launch event last night and reports on the ground bring good news: Palm employees specifically said that Flash would be available in February. Previously we had been a little unsure of that, what we knew for sure was that webOS 1.4 would lay the underpinning for it, but the actual release (which is coming in the App Catalog) was less clear.

As for the actual implementation, apparently that's not fully pinned down yet. It could come via browser integration or tapping a flash block could launch a separate card to run the flash 'app.' We don't exactly get a vote, but if we did we'd vote for the latter option - as cool as Flash is, it's still slow and we don't like the idea of it slowing down the browser. 

But hey, who's looking forward to Flash Games on the Palm Pre?

Thanks, anonymous!
