Hi All.

Is there ANY smartphone available that has a "real" desktop like browser?
Full Flash 10.1, full HTML 5, etc. (everything except for ActiveX).

I have a Nokia n97 which I thought was good at the time I bought it, but it will NEVER run full Flash 10.1. Even Thomashardware pages can blow up my little browser.
At least I can FINALLY make real voice calls using Skype.

Any ideas?
Of course such as phone will need a fairly large screen. About 800x480?

Does such a thing exist so I don't need to always carry a netbook?

Ok, thanks!

I may need to wait a few years if I also decent video playback, 3D games, and mini-HDMI.

Can Andriod do what I described?

Also, happy Thanksgiving for all you Americans and Canadians (Oct 11).

Android devices support flash content but its not as fluid as a PC.

Thanks for the response!
It seems I'll need to wait a few years before I can get a full desktop browsing experience on a phone.

Well,the Safari browser(on iOS devices) is great and enjoyable to use but it lacks flash.
