Default Does cowon s9 have flash?

One of my strange fetish for any mobile device is if it has adobe flash lite capabilities.

Do any of you know if the cowon s9 has flash playback?
I know I read somewhere that its UI is in flash, but that's not the same as being able to play flash movies/games.

This will sadly be the deal breaker for me between the spinn and the s9

I've never owned a cowon product, but I heard that the d2 previously had a flash UI but no playback. However after a few updates flash playback was given.

Excuse me if I'm totally missing the picture, but does flash UCI and flash UI constitute for flash playback? Not only in the sense of GUI but also the ability to play flash games?

The D2 was able to play flash games and flash application, and that didnt even support flash when it was released. So the S9 should be able to play flash apps, im pretty sure of that.

It does, it's listed in the specs on sites that have it listed as coming soon. My D2 can use flash skins, and can play flash based games. The S9 will be able to utilize flash as it's UI. Read the info above, as well as look through the threads dedicated to the S9 (and O2) and you'll see this question, as well as a few others, being answered (as well as we could answer them. We have no special info on these products, just a few cool people translating the Korean news posts that Cowon puts out).

Here's the Cowon Global site link: http://www.cowonglobal.com/
Seems that the Korea site redirects the link back to the
global site. There is a link to the Cowon Korea site on
the page.
