iPad Killer for Geeks

After the iPad announcement there was – and still is – a lot of geek talk that this thing should support Adobe Flash, and that a 16:9 screen ratio would have been much more interesting. Meet the JooJoo, aka CrunchPad. The most interesting thing about this device review in Engadget is not the poor execution of this ”iPad Killer“, but that they found the 16:9 ratio very bad for browsing and reading, and Flash indeed a serious impact on battery life – bringing battery run time from a mediocre 5 hours down to a measily 2.5!

There’s a key issue with Flash which will impact all Linux/Android devices: Only Adobe can make it faster. The only decent implementation of Flash today is on Windows. It’s a huge performance hog on OS X, Linux and any mobile OS, and so drains the battery of any mobile device quickly. Adobe has to work hard on this to make it into the mobile space, or many sites will look for alternatives to deliver their content.
