Adobe has pulled its flash player app from Google Play. It has conceded that HTML5 is currently the best solution. Details here:
My Home Cinema Pioneer KRP 500A, Yamaha RX-V1900, MA Radius R225HD LCR, R90HD rears, AW12 sub, Panasonic BD60, PS3, Boxee Box, Sky HD, Boxee Box, Logitech Harmony One, Logitech PS3 Adapter, Sonos ZP90
Bedroom Samsung UE32C6510, PS3 slim white, Apple TV, Sonos S5, Sonos ZP90, Audioengine 2, Oppo OPDV971H
Miscellaneous: Synology DS212J + 2 X WD Red 2TB drives, WD 1TB NAS, Sonos ZoneBridge, BT HH3 as modem & AirPort Extreme router
Shame. That was the only thing which nearly tempted me to buy into Android and not iOS.
Main gear: Mac Mini > HRT Streamer II+ > Marantz PM66 KI > Mission 794
Also cluttering-up the place:
Thorens TD160 no cartridge; Marantz CD63 mkII KI; Technics SL-P777; Cyrus 2 + PSX; Cyrus Tuner; Nakamichi DR-1
Although if your phone does have flash it will see the upgrades. It will only be hidden from new/JB phones or something or other. Basically alot of phones will still have working flash.

Looks like the apple embargo on flash is killing it off. I must admit, much as I like flash, I've found it a major pain at times as an end-user, another code base to have installed on a device, with constant updates and large files to download on slow connections that rendered pages unusable until completed.
Hi Fi: Arcam A85, DV88 (CD only), Project Debut II, AE Compact-1. AV: Arcam AVR250, DV79, Sony BDP-S760, Monitor Audio Silver 8i, RS-LCR, RXFX, Sonos ZP90, Pioneer KRP500A. 2nd AV: Pioneer SX-SWR2, Dell Zino HD, KEF KHT2005.2 eggs, Sonos ZP90. That Cable HDMI, Chord Crimsons and Sonos ZPS5s everywhere & a spare Yamaha RXV-667!
No, I think Adobe realised the limitations of Flash on a mobile browser. Apple was only vociferous in its dislike, but Adobe had a strong following in the Android community which was enough for it to remain successful.
