All Hulu needs to do is create an app that uses HTML5 video and H.264 playback. Both are already supported in Android - that's how we use the YouTube app. With the app they would be able to get the statistics they need for commercials, playback problems, etc. that Flash provides for them.
Think about this - say you're browsing the webberbuttz on your phone and suddenly, everything slows down to super slow, Matrix-esque slowmo. That's what browsing the web would be like if Android had Flash support. Flash ads bogging down load times, flash website components bogging stuff down, etc. You know that sometimes glitch where you end up scrolling the whole page? Imagine that -every time-. Yeah...
Frankly, I never trust what Adobe says when it comes to flash,
They claimed flash 10 was coming to windows mobile a long time ago, and just recently announced they aren't going to release it at all.. same with as you pointed out (to the post above mine) with android devices.

Just have to wait till next upgrade to play Farmville I guess...
The processor won't support it. Samsung and Adobe have both confirmed this. 1Ghz and over sounds like the cut point in Android.
the cut point is not 1 ghz the reason we will not be getting flash is the processor.
According to Adobe, an Android device must have both Android 2.1 and an ARM v7 (Cortex) processor which includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon and the TI OMAP3 processors. Currently the only phone to meet these requirements is the Nexus One, the Droid will join it shortly after it receives the 2.1 OTA.
Sprint has just added its first full QWERTY Keyboard Android Phone to their lineup with the Samsung Moment. Initially rumored as the "InstinctQ", the Moment rocks an 800 MHz processor - what was the fastest processor in an Android phone a... Read More
