PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, Flash on mobile is now completely dead. "There will be no certified implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1. Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th."

There will be a ton of Flash content still around in the web for a long time to come. Think games or whatever and that will keep the need for a Flash player alive for atleast a decade.


Yes, there's all that Flash content out there, but as you say, it needs a Flash player. And the point of this article is that for mobile platforms at least, there isn't going to be one. For anyone using the web on a smart phone or tablet, that old content is effectively already dead and unusable.
