As we anxiously await the arrival of the shinny new toy, some of our time is spent in speculation: will all my iPhone apps work on the iPad? Should I have ordered the 3G model? Will it be easier to best my high score in Flight Control with a larger screen or will my hands get sore having to draw larger flight paths? How much of a drag will it be not to have Flash?
No one knows. But there are signs that the lack of Flash may not be such a big problem. Apple might have enough clout that most sites will produce versions of their sites that are iPad friendly. NPR and The Wall Street Journal are reportedly already working on versions of their sites that will be iPad friendly.
It will be interesting to see how many others do the same thing; and whether we will miss Flash.
