It was strange when the Galaxy Nexus was released, adobe didn’t have any support for it. You would figure Google’s premier phone would have that worked out already.
That aside, It is great to finally see flash support come to the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich. As we all know Adobe was working on some other projects, but kept the Galaxy Nexus in mind when they released this following statement a while back:
We’ve received some questions regarding support for Adobe Flash Player 11.1 and AIR 3.1 on the Galaxy Nexus. To be clear, the Galaxy Nexus does not initially support Adobe Flash Player 11.1 and AIR 3.1. As we previously communicated in a blog post, devices and software updates from our partners which introduce new technologies are being developed on varied schedules that are different from our own, which means that the Adobe runtimes may not always be optimized or supported on devices until a subsequent release. We will provide a minor update to the runtimes to support the Galaxy Nexus in December.
Of course I am and have always been a hopeful fan of a HTML5 only internet utopia, but until that day arrives adobes flash player will have to suffice.
Thanks to everyone who brought this to my attention.
You can download Flash 11 from the Android Marketplace
