This wasn’t an easy decision. After all I’m supposed to be a Nokia fan boy. However, after much deliberation my trusty wee Nokia 5800 has been put aside and I’m now using the Google Nexus One as my primary mobile.

Anyone who knows me will be well aware that I’m quite enthusiastic when it comes to the Symbian S60 operating system. It’s something I’ve grown comfortable with over the years and has always dictated what phone I get next.

I’ve been tinkering with Flash on mobile since Flash Lite appeared on the scene and Nokia have always done an excellent job of supporting Flash Lite on their mobile platforms. Flash is actually the reason I got my first Series 60 handset and it’s the reason why I’ve stuck with Nokia devices for so long.

However things are changing and Nokia don’t seem to be keeping up. Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2.5 have now arrived on mobile and I’ve been desperate to explore both. Unfortunately there’s no sign of Flash Player 10.1 on any upcoming Nokia devices and they seem to be going with Flash Lite 4 in the short term rather than AIR.

So for the time being I’m moving over to Android, where I can get a much more complete web experience and also create cool Flash apps until my heart’s content.

This doesn’t mean I’ve become an overnight Nokia hater or anything. I will be keeping an eye out to see how things develop. The Nokia N8 looks like it could be quite interesting – It’s just a shame its doesn’t support Adobe AIR.
