Windows Phone 7 May Be On To Something

Flash on its way to WM7 - adobe confirms.
Silverlight doesnt work really?
And again Windows is pushing for HTML hard for the next update.
The silverlight bad info. is kinda shocking for PCWORLD to screw up on.

If you write an email, and want to swap the order of paragraphs, it won't let you! If you want to take a quote from a web page, and put it in a document, Windows Phone 7 won't let you.
Then you realize that Bluetooth file exchange is not working.
You are not allowed to load custom ringtones into any Windows Phone 7 device.
It can't log onto a hidden wireless hotspot. It can't tether to a laptop. No USB syncing. No real-time multiplayer games. No turn-by-turn navigation (you're stuck with Bing Maps instead). You're also locked to Internet Explorer, which can't view any video inside the browser.
Why on earth would anyone choose Windows Phone 7 when it has all these faults? Better to go with Android or iPhone.

Please tell me a device that has no faults?
The iPhone, for example, has been out for years - and they still don't have an alarm clock that rings at the right time!
My guess is the first revision will correct these "faults" in WP7.
