The 822 has Adobe Flash? Im not too sure about that.
Thank you, this is helpful, although misleading. All I have to do is add a memory chip to the 822, and it becomes the better phone per your review. Add to that its global ready, removable (hence replaceable) battery, which you don't include in the review and I think it becomes the clear cut winner. Given its free right now on Verizon, it makes it even more desirable.
