Computerworld - "Chrome for Android will not run Flash Player, the popular software that Apple has famously banned, Adobe confirmed yesterday.
The acknowledgment was no surprise: Last November, Adobe announced it was abandoning development of Flash for mobile browsers. In other words, Google missed the Flash boat by several months.
"Adobe is no longer developing Flash Player for mobile browsers, and thus Chrome for Android Beta does not support Flash content," said Bill Howard, a group product manager on the Flash team, in an Adobe blogTuesday.
The stock Android browser included with the operating system does support Flash, noted Howard."

Those of us in elearning have been watching this development for quite awhile. Some of us have predicted it for a long time. Steve Jobs knew it all along. Flash is great on the desktop, but unstable and a resource hog when it comes to mobile devices. As they say: "Stick a fork in it, it's done!
"But what will we do for all the pizazz and animation without Flash?" some of you are still wondering?
...and now the same course on your iPad or other tablet: http://bit.ly/vTNRj8 Yeah, there were a couple of things left off this early proof of concept, but you can see all the power is certainly there.
Since the sample above, we've gone on to do many SCORM compliant tablet courses, with all the usual bells and whistles of our Flash courses. Not only is the tablet changing programming--it's changing everything! We're truly entering into the post-PC era you've heard about!
