Wii U Internet Browser Specs now available, Flash not supported

The specifications for the Wii U's Internet browser are now available and reveal screen resolution, no plug-in support and more.

Plug-ins such as Flash will not be supported, nor will multi-touch features, which give users powers such as pinch-to-zoom. Only one TouchEvent, including touchstart or touchcancel, can be used at a time. Users will also be unable to save or upload videos and images.

The Wii U will allow owners to watch shows on their TV while browsing on the GamePad. Additionally, the Wii U will allow users to pause a game, launch a browser to search for tips on that title and then quickly resume play.

For the full list of Wii U specs, check out Nintendo's website.
