Google Android 2.2 (Froyo) to Come with Flash Support

Google Android 2.2 (Froyo) to Come with Flash Support

Before websites fully integrate into the HTML5 scene, mobile devices are still sorely lacking in one aspect - Flash content. That is, until recently, when Adobe has announced that it'll be bringing it onto upcoming Android devices. Lo and behold, Google's Andy Rubin has made it somewhat official - Android 2.2, or known as Froyo, will be integrated with full support for Flash.

Engadget - Gather 'round, Android fans, because Google's Android boss Andy Rubin has done a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times, and we're guessing you're going to want to hear what he has to say. The biggest news to come out of it is word that Android 2.2, a.k.a. Froyo, will come complete with full support for Flash, which is far and away the most official confirmation we've had to date, and slightly contradicts earlier talk that Flash support wouldn't necessarily be built into the OS.

There's still no official word on the arrival of the first Froyo devices, but hopefully, it'll hit the shelves just before or during Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 hits the market. For more insights into the Andy Rubin interview, check out the full story here.
