Update for Adobe Flash Player fixes issues on Samsung Galaxy S II and more
While Adobe isn't making any broad updates for the Flash Player after its update for Ice Cream Sandwich flavored devices, it did promise to support the application. Now available in the Android Market, Flash Player version repairs video streaming problems found on the Samsung Galaxy S II. The update also adds support for 1080p video on devices powered by the quad-core Tegra 3 like the Asus Transformer Prime. Even if you don't have those devices, because of security enhancements installed on the update, Adobe recommends installing the update.

The update fails to bring Flash to Android 4.0. Adobe has said that it will offer a build of the Flash Player app for Ice Cream Sandwich, but it has yet to be released. This means that those Samsung GALAXY Nexus users who like to have Flash on their browser will have to wait. And yeah, U.S. smartphone users are still waiting for the GALAXY Nexus to be launched from Verizon, so those in the States haven't missed a thing so far.

Ahh good to see that Adobe is doing as they said. I'm glad they keep pushing out updates and fixes for a product that is on many MANY different devices. Honestly though it did seem fine on my SGSII before the update but ohh well.

Gemini and you lived in a land where iOS 5 doesn't have battery problems and iPhone 4 antenna gate doesn't exist. Come on gemini you can't call others famboy when you truly are one. At least I have seen remixfa mention some flaws on android phones once. You on the other hand iPhone is perfect in your eyes.
