Subject Re: Flex on Windows 8

I bought an acer windows tablet, specifically because I'm able to play
facebook flash games on it.

However, the windows mobile phone, can not run AIR or Flash.

It's not really accurate to say that the Windows "Tablet" is running Flash,
but more that the windows Tablets are able to run Dekstop.
