Adobe confirms Flash reprieve for Android ICS

Adobe confirms Flash reprieve for Android ICSGood news, Flash fans: Adobe has confirmed that it will be issuing a version of the Flash Player for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich after all, contrary to earlier reports that the only new versions we'd see from now on would be for BlackBerry.

But while that should still ensure ICS users get that “full web experience” everyone (well, OK, Adobe) keeps banging on about, be warned: there'll be no more Flash after that.

“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,” an Adobe representative told Pocket-lint.

That'll be a welcome relief for Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners, who now only have their possessed volume level control to worry about.

But don't forget, as Adobe's press release put it earlier this month, “HTML5 [is] the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms”.
