iPad CBS HTML5 Test

With the April 3rd launch of the iPad rapidly approaching, it appears that many popular websites are quietly redesigning their content for HTML5 in anticipation (the iPad famously doesn’t support Adobe Flash). A blogger has reportedly found evidence on CBS’s website that they are gearing up to offer their videos in HTML5 streaming format. The site was viewed with an iPad SDK simulator, and phrases like “iPad-test” appeared below the videos.

If more websites continue this trend (and the iPad becomes more and more popular), perhaps Flash’s reign is coming to an end.
