We're starting to look back fondly on those days when Android fragmentation meant choosing between Donut, Eclair and Froyo.
Because as Google's OS has grown more popular, its fragmentation problem has turned into a bit of a sweet-toothed orgy, and it looks like we can now add Android 3.1 Honeycomb to the confectionary-based confusion.
News of the latest addition to the Android flavour-fest comes not from Google itself but from Adobe, and at least provides us with a solution to the question of how to get the new Flash 10.2 player running at full potential on Android Honeycomb tablets.
At appears that Android's slate-based OS could be set for a minor 3.1 upgrade not significant enough to warrant a whole new name, but with one notable feature missing from the ordinary Honeycomb v3.0 – support for full hardware accelerated 720p video.
The tip-off comes in the form of the latest spec for version 10.2.157.51 of the Flash Player, although it's worth noting that Adobe has now changed the spec to simple read “requires an upcoming release of Android 3” rather than specifically “requires Android 3.1”. But we suspect the cat may be well out of the bag on this one.
