A couple weeks ago we announced that Adobe has finally given up on trying to support Flash for mobile devices. This week we find out that there will be one last update, for Ice Cream Sandwich. This is actually good news if you were planning on picking up a new tablet like the Asus Transformer Prime this Christmas season. Until the mobile world gets everything in order to move from Flash support to HTML5 support, it will be nice to know that most things will still function on your shiny new Android tablet. However, there is not a current date available when Flash will be ready for ICS. This also means that there is currently no support for Flash on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the first device to be running Android 4.0.
There are a lot of Flash based websites that are currently in the process of getting an HTML5 version up and running. The biggest one is probably Youtube. Youtube has been working on an HTML5 site for a while now, and has most of it’s features functioning properly. In fact, you can opt-in to the HTML5 version of Youtube to check it out by visiting Youtube.com/html5.[Mobiledia]
