Late yesterday saw Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch take to the official blog to reiterate the company’s recent stance on mobile platforms. No longer interested in working with Apple, Adobe has decided to move forward with other mobile operating systems, specifically Android.
It’s no longer a secret that Flash will be integrated into the next release of Android (Froyo). Google’s own Andy Rubin verified this in a recent NYTimes interview. We expect to see Android demonstrated at Google I/O but when might we actually see the rollout? Lynch sets the table for a June arrival.
We look forward to delivering Flash Player 10.1 for Android smartphones as a public preview at Google I/O in May, and then a general release in June. From that point on, an ever increasing number and variety of powerful, Flash-enabled devices will be arriving which we hope will provide a great landscape of choice.
