Adobe: Both Flash Player 11 and Adobe AIR to Support Galaxy Nexus in December

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus may not support Adobe Flash 11 or AIR yet, but it will at some point in December according to the latest blog post from the Flash team. We were informed a week ago that they would bring support by the end of the year to Flash, so this matches up to that report while also tossing in an Adobe AIR mention. After both of these apps are updated though, don’t expect to see many more. With development halted on mobile platforms, we’ll have to look to community developers to make versions available to newer devices.

    Galaxy Nexus to get Adobe Flash 11 support in December, Verizon boasts “ours will ship with it”.

    Haven’t missed flash at all, I’m running ICS on Samsung Fascinate. The web has come a long way this past year. I remember using my iPad and it was terrible all the sites that didn’t work. Now, just about every site has HTML 5 video up and you don’t really have problems anymore. 

    HTML5 video experience on Android is just better than flash. Easier to zoom in and fast forward. It was so difficult to fast forward flash. 

    It’s a good thing that flash is dying.

      People are sheep.  The great one Stevo said it sucked and everyone followed.  I never had any issues with flash on the desktop and I don’t now on a dual core phone. Meanwhile, the sites that converted to html5 are less impressive, less capable and crash more often.

    The Galaxy Nexus on Verizon Wirlesses motto should be “Can you touch me now?”

    • Ufcjeff

    So Kellex, are we to be teased by every screenshot now with your GSM G-Nex? Low blow.

  • http://subzerosoldiers.com Matt

    I thought they were just stopping flash and focusing on AIR which can utilize HTML 5?

    (For mobile that is, obviously)

    No flash on ICS = fail

      How is it possible you post a false comment like this on an article that’s stating ICS will have Flash support?

      Your constant failure is worrying.

        It will have, but not at release lol

        • Anonymous

          They’ve said they would have it in December… when the Nexus comes out?  Just stop talking, you look dumber every day.

      did you even read the article? it gets flash in december, the phone itself is released in december or probably later if verizon dumbfucks keep delaying it.

        Lol you may get it by February lol.

        • Anonymous

          probably, but that is verizon’s decision, not samsungs. they need to delay it so they can pile there bloatware onto it.

    Why do this? Flash is dead and won’t be updated beyond this which leaves it open to security issues. Leave it off.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mariafe.c.oneill Maria Fe Camaya O’Neill

      Adobe has said that they will continue to support flash with patches they just aren’t going to produce new versions. Flash will still be around for sometime to come because it has it’s uses still. Only when HTML5 is finally ready will flash truely be dead.

            we all hate verizon. who cares if they have the best network and the fastest 4g. they are cheap scamming  shitheads, who keep delaying all the good phones, when people have been waiting for 6 months straight.

    Gee, I’m glad that’s cleared up.

  • Clevelandrocks

    This phone will not be released by Verizon until flash is supported. Watch.

    • http://twitter.com/Rocko9999 Rocko Smith

      Right, becuase Verizon will make Adobe change their mind and keep Flash support alive on the mobile platform…. Lame.

      • Clevelandrocks

        Verizon can do whatever they want and adobe is making one more update to there flash for phones. Nexus does not have flash support nor does it have HTML 5 support. (I think) so flash will be first and whatever everyone else agrees on using after that will be next.

        • Angryunibrow

          HTML 5 support comes in the browser, not the actual phone or an app.

    • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

      Trust me Flash is no longer a big deal. Most sites have already switched to HTML 5. So there’s not a lot of content left out there that anyone would miss out on by not having Flash.

    Let us know when the Galaxy Nexus will support American human interaction.
    I jumped ship to the Rezound, but I’m pretty entertained by the Nexus soap opera.

    • And_Boogy

      Me too- the Rezound is awesome- especially for only $50.  Sorry Nexus- that ship has sailed.

      • Anonymous

        I did as well. The vaporware status, ICS bugs, and crappy camera sealed it for me about a week ago. Should have my new Rezound in a few days.

        • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

          I have ICS on my Samsung Fascinate. I agree, you just need to get ICS on that thing and it will be just as amazing as the Nexus. 

          I’m seriously considering holding off on upgrading because ICS runs so well on my Samsung Fascinate. Feels like a new experience, even though it’s an aging phone.

    The REAL reason behind the GNex delays (or whatever you call it)!

    • http://twitter.com/dandrews81 Dave Andrews

      I agree – i think Red wants to wait until all the bells and whistles are readily available.

      • GNexonTmobile

        Oh, please… yeah, like they care about releasing their products completely ready.  The Xoom was released so early the amount of features missing was laughable (along with anyone gullible enough to buy it).  The real reason why they haven’t even announced a release date is because they’re waiting to see how many Rzors and Droid 4’s they can sell to people who get sick of waiting for the GNex.  It’s as simple as that…

  • JonnyKtyler

    Do you think this might be the reason they delayed GN in the US?

  • http://twitter.com/slole1 Slole One

    Android’s dev community is amazing and will do the work until HTML 5 is standard. So people… Please support your devs!

  • Zeekle

    The nexus will get flash before we get the nexus.

  • dima

    Thats nice I suppose, but not so useful while we are still here waiting for the device. :-/

  • Dominick DeVito

    Sweet deal.
