Android 2.2 to include full support for Adobe Flash

Well not being a android user myself but dealing with them on a daily basis i can probably speak for alot of android users when i say its about time.  Been along time coming for the android platform but i assume alot of users will be very happy. I can say that as long as it doesnt make the phones sluggish and slow people will be pretty happy.


In an interview with the New York Times, Andy Rubin, VP of Engineering at Google, put to rest all the rumors and confirmed that the upcoming Android 2.2 release known as “Froyo” will include support for Adobe Flash. Flash for Android was first demonstrated on the T-Mobile G1 back in November 2008 and the Android community has been waiting with growing impatience for this feature to launch on their open source mobile platform. Though Rubin was generous in sharing the Adobe Flash information, he failed to disclose even a tentative launch date for Android 2.2. Android fans are now left in the unenviable position of knowing that Flash support is coming in the next release but still relying on the rumor mill to predict when the release might rollout. For those who are keeping track, the latest guesstimate points to a May unveiling.
