Google demos Flash in Android device

By Ricky on February 17th, 2010 

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.

Tseng said:

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.
