VBWeekly: E-readers, the death of Flash mobile, and the future of apps (video)

Yes, it’s time for another installment of VBWeekly. This week we discuss, in free form, the release of the latest Android-based e-readers, the Kobo, the Kindle Fire and the Nook. We wonder if they can be considered a different class of tablets from the pricier devices, such as the iPad or Galaxy Tab.

We then pay our final respects to Flash mobile, as Adobe announced it will stop developing Flash mobile in order to put more effort into HTML5. We also drift into a discussion of how developers will start working on HTML5 instead of native apps, and if phones and tablets will become more powerful and not need to run native code.
