I just joined the forums yesterday and I am really impressed!! I searched the forum for the answer to this, but I am not a technical person so most of the posts regarding Flash seem to just be people whining about it or spouting acronyms and numbers I do not understand. Basically, I am just wondering if it possible in the world of "computer land" for this version of the iPad to support Flash (i.e. through software updates or an app), or is this something that will not be available until the next version of the ipad comes out. Either way I am buying the iPad as soon as I can get my hands on one, but it will change which size I buy (i.e. if I will have to buy the newer version to get flash, I am only buying the $499 one now and I will sell it when the newer versions are released).
