Google Android OS v2.2: Adobe Flash Support

Andy Rubin from Google has given an interview to the New York Times, where he decided to reveal a few details regarding its mobile OS. Rubin said that Android OS 2.2 – Code named Froyo – would fully support Adobe Flash upon release next month on the Google Nexus One handset.

Rubin then had a little stab at Apple, by saying that they will offer something what the user wants, something that Apple does not do – he must be talking about HTML5. We all know that users would love to play Flash content on their iPhone or iPad, but Steve Jobs does not allow it.

Jolie O’Dell from Mashable points out that Google seems more focused on “interoperability, compatibility and diversity of user experience.” There is certainly some truth there; you only have to look at the number of free services that Google offers to users.

Andy Rubin also discussed how Google aims to continue with keeping Android open for developers, Porn and API access. He even had time to hit on the whole stolen iPhone 4G prototype subject, saying that Google would have enjoyed all the free attention.

There certainly seems to be a pattern here, Google is thinking of the user – this is why Android market share continues to grow.
