    This announcement has me feeling like singing a song…(Insert Michael Buble melody) “Andy Rubins, he’s the man, he just dropped a Flash 10.1 release date bombshell on all the Android fans. Bam.” Wow. Andy Rubins, the VP of engineering for Google had a quick chat with media members last week and casually tossed out a Flash notice…
    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.
    He also likened Apple to North Korea…
    Mr. Rubin also addressed many other topics—like whether consumers actually care if their mobile phone software is “open” or not. He insisted that they will, comparing closed computing platforms to totalitarian governments that deprive their citizens of choice. “When they can’t have something, people do care. Look at the way politics work. I just don’t want to live in North Korea,” he said.

    Lets hope rooters slap this into a nice ROM before or the day this happenes. (seeing how updates have gone, I am sure rooters will have this before unrooters do, just seems to be the way things go)

    Flash arrives with Froyo.

    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.

    Because it was speculated that Flash will be coming with Froyo. This coming from Rubin's confirms it is coming with Froyo.

    Unfortunatly HULU might not work with this. I mean yes, hulu is flash but there is much more to it, so I am thinking it's possible that sites like these, netflix, may not work even when flash is installed... No one will know till its tried, but thats my educated guess...

    As for flash.. get going ROM developers, we need this before them! Ha.

    It was confirmed it would be coming at the end of the year. Froyo will probably come at the end of the year.

    Therefore this is not anything new.

    I hope this means we'll be getting the Slingbox app as well since Sling and Adobe are working together on this.
