Google Android 2.2 to Support Flash, Going Where Apple Won’t

Google’s Andy Rubin told The New York Times that Android 2.2, or Froyo, will fully support Adobe’s Flash technology. The position stands in stark contrast to Apple, which has eschewed Flash for its iPhone and iPad. In case it wasn’t clear before, there is a new crusade among the mobile Web, or rather an old crusade with newer players, with Apple unapologetically waving the proprietary flag and Google taking up the open mantle.
Google’s Android director has confirmed that Android 2.2, the forthcoming version of the company’s operating system for smartphones, tablets and netbooks, will support Adobe’s Flash technology at launch.
