Engadget has news of Flash’ demise on Android devices:
Adobe was very public about dropping mobile Flash last fall. In case that wasn’t clear enough, the developer just drew a line in the sand: Android 4.1 doesn’t, and won’t ever, get certification for Flash. The company is stopping short of saying that Flash won’t run, but it’s evident that Adobe won’t help you if the web browser plugin doesn’t install (or breaks in spectacular fashion) on that Nexus 7. Just to underscore the point, the firm is also halting new installations of Flash from Google Play as of August 15th.
So it you really really want Flash on a tablet, looks like the PlayBook is your only choice. Get one before RIM shuts its doors and stops making them!
Flash has always sucked on smartphones, has pretty much sucked on tablets (The notable is exception is the PlayBook, on which flash worked most of the time) and should have been abandoned long ago. “Thoughts on Flash,” an April 2010 letter by Steve Jobs, has proven to be right on the money.
