The Galaxy Nexus Will Support Flash, By The End Of This Year


There has been a lot of talk over the weekend on whether or not the Galaxy Nexus, and more specifically Android Ice Cream Sandwich, would support Adobe’s Flash Player. Last week we reported that Adobe will no longer develop Flash player for mobile, and instead will focus its efforts on HTML5.

With reports from some of the first Galaxy Nexus owners that Adobe Flash isn’t even available for download on the device, a lot of people are worrying that it never will. First off, the thought of that is just disappointing. I mean, we’ve waited so long for the Galaxy Nexus, a device that has the horsepower to run Flash smoothly (especially on its huge HD screne), only to find out that it won’t work. Well, Adobe has good news for you:

Adobe will release one more version of the Flash Player for mobile browsing, which will provide support for Android 4.0, and one more release of the Flash Linux Porting Kit – both expected to be released before the end of this year. After that time, Adobe will continue to provide critical bug fixes and security updates.

There you go, straight from Adobe themselves we have confirmation that Android 4.0 will support Adobe Flash. They are working on it right now and plan to release it before the end of the year. So in other words, around the time you finally get your hands on the Galaxy Nexus.
