The new Archos tablets are sexy!

Archos is going to release a lot of tablets this month, all running Android and they look good :).

You’ll get the full Web experience on them (HTML5 AND Flash) and HD video playback.

The WePad is the best selling Tablet on Amazon.de

Interesting…The WePad won’t be shipped for another month, but it’s already ahead of the rest on amazon.de… Probably because fanbois go to the local temple to buy their gear and because the rest of us buy our 3G gear subsidised from a phone shop.

Anyway, that Android powered device is also www.mediamarkt.de/computer-buero/ps/wetab/">available for order on Mediamarkt and will probably be pretty popular with people that need a device with better connectivity than an iPad, a 16/9 HD screen and a book reader that isn’t restricted.

I really see this as a good home or office device, while the Samsung Tablet and Dell Streak will be better suited for people that need the Real Internet on the go.

Flash is notorious for its security problems, but there are ways to protect yourself without banning it from devices: Blitzableiter

1

Most people creating Flash content don’t have a degree in Computer Science and fail to really understand OOP and to build optimized and secure applications. Worse, some content is loaded dynamically, meaning that what you put on your website (ads), may not be what’s going to be displayed to your visitors after all. All that and the fact that the Flash player has a long release history and contains 2 VMs means that it’s bloated and is not restrictive enough.

Some hypocritical extremists (#Apple) went for a total ban of the technology on their mobile devices, claiming that it was too slow and insecure, instead of trying to make it work like most other mobile companies are doing. We all know that wasn’t the real reason for the ban and we’re not surprised by more lies coming from a company that denies the Antennagate, but there is truth to the claims that Flash has security problems.

I loved one of the slides of Recurity Labs’ paper on their Blitzableiter application that filters flash files, removing malware, etc. It was titled “Native Security Functionality of Adobe Flash” and was left empty :D.

Recurity Labs are offering an interesting solution for people concerned with what a website can do with their personal data and I encourage you to read more about it on the project’s page:

If you have a real smartphone and not some glorified feature phone, you can look forward to Flash on your device :)
