    Adobe probably has yet to update it to be "compatible" with ICS, even if that just means changing the market info.

    Adobe has discontinued Flash on everything expect desktops.

    I know they've discontinued it. But the way I understand it, a developer can flag their app on the market to only be considered compatible with certain devices or versions of Android, preventing all others from downloading it. If Adobe has flash flagged as compatible with 2.x, and 3.x, someone running version 4.x wouldn't be able to install it from the market.

    Sometimes you just wonder where you were when things made the news. Flash was a big + in android. It will be so long before everything gets updated.

    I believe they're supporting it still though with stability/security fixes.

    TBH this kind of stuff happens all the time during releases. Anyone with the OG Droid knows about app compatibility during the early days of Froyo/Gingerbread. It takes a good month or two for most apps to work fully on new versions.

    I thought Adobe ceased all the updates and development for Flash on mobile platforms , they will only provide security fixes if security problems arise . They will not support future OS or browser versions . I also heard that they laid off 750 engineers working for Flash
    At this point I hope the browser in ICS is similar to the one in Honeycomb and the version from Honeycomb can be installed . If the differences are to big I bet Adobe couldn't care less , it's not like they gonna rehire some of the engineers just to create an updated version for such a small target .
