We all know that the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t come with Flash support due to the fact that Flash Player for mobile hasn’t been developed for Ice Cream Sandwich, though it’s currently on the way. However, to fall in line with Adobe’s recent announcement about killing off Flash for Mobile, Adobe has confirmed that this upcoming version will be the last version of Flash to be released for mobile devices. This means versions of Android after Ice Cream Sandwich might not support Flash (assuming it won’t be compatible with this upcoming Flash Player).
Adobe will continue supporting the player, by releasing critical bug fixes and security updates, but other than that, it looks like Flash for mobile is pretty much done. However Adobe doesn’t plan to get rid of Flash – the company will now be focusing on improving Flash to bring console-quality gaming and premium video to PCs and TVs. It sure looks like Flash is here to stay – just that it won’t be travelling around with us.
