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."

Adobe is not killing its control over internet media, and they certainly would not do it for no reason.

They are killing the mobile devices with mobile OSen.

Look at the devices in the certified list. With Microsoft loosing on the mobile front, pushing flash back to the PC will mean you will need a PC OS on a tablet to view flash content, kinda like what MS pushes...
