Flash 10.1 Player delay for Android tablets
Mobile support for WebOS and BlackBerry smartphones also face extra delay
Adobe has announced that its Flash 10.1 player will not arrive for Android, WebOS and BlackBerry devices until the second half of 2010.
Revealed In an interview with Fox Business News to talk up Creative Suite 5, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen confirmed that the latest Flash update would now be moved to later in the year having initially been pencilled in for a release in the first half of 2010.

That means that Android tablet devices such as the WePad which are expected to support Flash, will now receive a launch date nearer to the arrival of the Flash 10.1 Player.
One possible reason for delay arrives courtesy of The Flash Blog where Adobe’s Lee Brimelow revealed that private beta versions of Flash Player 10.1 for Android were now available. Developers can now also sign up to be notifed when the public version is available.
In the continuing Adobe versus Apple debate Nayaren also commented on Apple’s decision not to include Flash on the iPad saying that a flash-less iPad, “hurts consumers” and will ultimately be judged by people voting “for the experience that they want through their wallet.” We fully anticipate an Apple response in the not so distant future.
