Today, in the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Google product manager Eric Tseng announced that Google will soon add the ability to play Flash videos in its Android mobile OS. This is a very significant announcement from Google as it will give its Android OS a clear advantage over the iPhone OS and the new Windows Phone 7 Series OS - both of which does not have Flash capability.
By working closely with Adobe we can tie the Flash runtime directly into the high-end hardware in these devices.
He also demonstrated the technology during Google CEO Eric Schmidt's keynote speech at the same event today. He demonstrated technology playing a trailer for a post-Apocalypse movie on an Android phone.
