Adobe posts last real Flash 11 mobile update
Adobe posted its last significant update to Flash 11 on Android (Market). The update is primarily to provide support with Android 4.0 phones like the Galaxy Nexus. Speed-ups and bug fixes are also part of the fix, Adobe said.
Outside of this last support update and possible security fixes, Adobe has stopped mobile Flash work in what's considered an admission that Apple was accurate about the viability of the technology. While Flash's absence on iOS helped make Apple's prediction a self-fulfilling prophecy, the rise of HTML5 led to a genuinely universal standard that was more efficient and safer.
