Ice Cream Sandwich Missing Flash, Final Update Coming at the End of the Year
Android enthusiast across the world have been in awe lately over Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact so much in awe that it appears that one major/minor (depending on who you ask) detail has been left out. Ice Cream Sandwich doesn’t support Flash, at least not for now.
With Adobe recently announcing the end of mobile Flash support, Google’s latest dessert flavored operating system currently lacks compatibility with the popular/not so popular (again depending on who you ask) multimedia plugin. All of you Android 4.0 hopefuls fearing the dreaded “missing plugin” error, take a breath and worry not. According to the peeps at Pocket-lint, Adobe will crank out one final update for Flash Player for mobile, which will be compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich. After that, you’re on your own. Here’s to hoping that HTML5 is all it’s cracked up to be.
