PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While most of us here on the OSNews team are proponents of HTML5, we're all fully aware that Flash serves an important role on the web today, and will most likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Flash has a rather spotty record when it comes to performance, and so far, hasn't been able to run well on mobile devices. It seems this is about to change, as an Adobe evangelist has showed off Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2 (Froyo) running on the Nexus One. And eerlijk is eerlijk, it looks pretty darn impressive, especially considering how far they've come.

Haha, if Flash is coming to Android, I hope somebody develops a flashblock plugin too. I don't want this shit on my desktop, and damn sure don't want it on my phone.

Hey Thom, how do you know it's any better on security? I'll let you install it so if somebody's phone gets rooted because of a Flash vulnerability, it won't be mine ;)
