    Google just confirmed it at an Android / Flash event in San Francisco, and sure enough, our trusty Nexus One just found, downloaded and installed the final (read: non-beta) version of Adobe's Flash Player 10.1. It weighs in at just under 5MB, and it's looking as sweet as ever so far. Nexus One owners can hit up the Android Market to get their download on, and we'd highly encourage you to bookmark a few dozen Flash sites just to rub in the faces of your dearest iDevice-owning friends. Just sayin'.[/p]

    There is a Flash implementation available on iOS.
    http://github.com/comex/frash

    However, Flash is a piece of shit, mostly worthless and just a waste of resources and battery life. I will continue to not install it on my iPhone nor my Android handsets.

    It's been available officially for almost a month.

    This is just the GM release.

    I've installed Frash on my iPhone 4 and I can pretty much assure you that it's outright useless, as for now.

    I guess that it's only a REALLY basic implementation of Flash, at the moment.

    That's Flash to a T.

    So I'd say the implementation is accurate [​IMG]

    I've hated Flash for far longer than Apple has produced media players.

    got the final automatically on my Acer Liquid (running a custom rom)
    it's actually working quite well.
    i tried a few flash games, including this addictive little game: http://www.ferryhalim.com/orisinal/g3/bells.htm and so far everything ran at full speed.
    even youtube works. (100% speed too, as long as you don't move around the page too much)

    for those concerned with flash ads: flash objects aren't loaded automatically, you need to click it first.
