Flash player problem on Samsung Galaxy Nexus mobile phone and Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0

Consumer electronics giant Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ 4.0 handset went on sale last week, where reports of the lack of an Adobeflash player has already been noted by early adopters.

One Mobile Ring has contacted Adobe, to discover when a flash player will be made available for the new Google mobile operating system where we have obtained an official response from the company, see below.

‘Adobe will release one more version of the Flash Player for mobile browsing, which will provide support for Android 4.0, and one more release of the Flash Linux Porting Kit - both expected to be released before the end of this year.’

‘After that time, Adobe will continue to provide critical bug fixes and security updates.’, adds Adobe.

The message goes on to state – ‘Adobe is focusing future innovation with Flash on advanced entertainment use cases, like console-quality gaming and premium video, with a focus on delivering these experiences through browsers on PCs and as apps through app stores on mobile devices and TVs.’

‘We are continuing to develop new versions of Flash for PC browsers and mobile and TV app developers. We are also continuing to develop new versions of Flash Professional and Flash Builder tools for developing Flash content.’ – ends Adobe.
