For those that have been anxiously awaiting Flash 10.1 the wait is almost over.
Andy Rudin says it will be released with the next version of Android code named Froyo. The article states:
He also promised that full support for Adobe’s Flash standard was coming in the next version of Android, code-named Froyo, for frozen yogurt (previous Android releases were called Cupcake, Donut and Eclaire, and are represented outside building 44 on the Google campus with giant sculptures of the desserts). Sometimes being open “means not being militant about the things consumer are actually enjoying,” he said.
Andy also spoke about the fear of the "fragmenting" of the Android OS:
These systems naturally evolve, causing newer applications to not be compatible with older devices. “But compatibility for us means more than it does for other people,” Mr. Rubin said. “We have to run on a screen the size of a phone and a 42-inch plasma display – and still be compatible. I think we have the world’s first moment where an app written for phone can run on TV.”
So there you have it. Flash with Froyo. Now if the rumors hold true May 19th will be a time to celebrate.
