Adobe today launched a full version of its Flash technology for users with handsets running Android 2.2, and the company has shipped Flash to other device partners in an effort to secure deployments on every major smartphone platform other than Apple’s iPhone. If Flash performs as well on smartphones as Adobe hopes, device makers will have a major opportunity to differentiate their gear from Apple’s hardware by promising to deliver the entire web to mobile users. But that window is already closing as content owners (led by porn companies) re-encode their stuff in HTML5 to enable access on the iPhone and iPad. So hardware vendors who can support Flash should begin shouting it from the rooftops immediately.
