In their press release (http://www.apple.com/iphone/pr/20070626plans.html) today, Apple and AT&T announced they have three service plans for the iPhone. Reuters (http://tinyurl.com/3cdj8j), AP (http://tinyurl.com/2ml83z), and NewsFactor (http://tinyurl.com/2os6a4) echoed the news. Problem with that is there are actually twelve plans posted on the Apple site (http://www.apple.com/iphone/easysetup/rateplans.html), in addition to three upgrade options for existing customers. Granted, the press release is wrong, but the service plans have been posted for hours. So why are the news guys still reporting there are three plans?

  1. Sumocat,

    If the iPhone doesn't do flash how will it handle websites with some flash navigation? Like WWE.com.

    Does it not do ANY flash, or just not flash videos?

  2. I believe it does not currently support Flash at all, but professionally produced sites, presumably WWE.com being among them, typically offer an alternate HTML interface for users on dial-up connections (still the majority of U.S. Internet accounts) and the visually impaired (through alt tags). At first glance, it seems odd that it doesn't support Flash, but I suspect it doesn't play well with the unique scalability in the browser. Still, it's a software feature, so it can and probably will be upgraded (I'm telling you, those upgrades through iTunes will be a key feature).
