Android fixed Status Bar is just BAD

I’m an ASUS eee Pad Transformer proudly owner, and even though I still didn’t receive the most promised ICS update for my Transformer, I’m already a bit disappointed at Google Design decision to maintaining it fixed bottom Status Bar.
The Honeycoumb was the first version of Android that was really intended for tablets and the idee of removing all the hardware buttons and use only software ones looked really the best way to go.

I’m an ASUS Transformer proudly owner, and even though I still didn’t receive the most promised ICS update for my Transformer (is due to March), I’m already a bit disappointed at Google Design decision to maintain its fixed bottom Status Bar.

The Honeycomb was the first Android version for tablets and the idea of removing all the hardware buttons and use only software buttons looked really the best way to go but  now with almost a year of using it, I start to realize it’s disadvantages.

First it will reduce the available screen height and second it’s prone to miss touching on those buttons when what you really want is to tap on some button that is on the bottom of the application.

This limitation is already addressed in this issue http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=15408 but it’s marked as WorkingAsIntended. If you are one of us that think that this is a huge design limitation, please express your thoughts in there!

I won’t buy iPad without Flash!

I believe that is acceptable Apple’s policy for not allowing flash in the iPhone, but is it acceptable for the iPad?
For starters the iPhone is suppose to be a mobile phone, with small screen size which make many flash websites to look “strange”. But with a 9 inch screen you except to view a website just like you would see it in a regular laptop.
I could have already bought an iPad, but I won’t since I want a device specially to browse the web and with it I just can’t browse many popular sites that I can with any Android phone…
