    At the rate Adobe is going I expect 10.1 to arrive around the same time as the Nexus 3. ;)

    Root the phone and install HTC Sense ROM and you'll have flash instantly

    I would like to do this, but i am scared of bricking my phone. I have never done anything like that before to a phone.

    It's actually fairly difficult to brick your phone. As long as you don't flash loltastic/broken kernels or corrupt radios, you're good.

    Meh, the support for Flash in Sense is only OK IMO, I'm waiting for the official Adobe release for it to be better.

    dont worry, i havent hacked my phone either. I like it as it is.

    I wished they released a beta version of Flash or anything, i dont really care if it's buggy lol. All those demo of flash on the Nexus/Droid makes me *drool*.

    If they dont get it out right before or right after the new iPhone 4g is announced they will lose a ton of interest.

    Apple has added multitasking and all signs point to a larger possible HD resolution screen.

    Would be nice for a FLASH ON ANDROID announcement to counter anything Apple has.

    Why? People who are interested in having Flash on their smartphones won't be paying any attention to the new iPhone, as it will never have Flash.

    I don't get it, AT ALL! why people give a damn about flash. I don't have flash on my computers nor any of my phones and there is never a website that I can't use that's worth my time.

    Your missing the overall picture; just having flash out there is not really the interest. The point is that you can design for the mobile platform such as creating flash games for mobile, movie players, music players..etc. Id like to use grooveshark on my mobile; would be nice.

    As of right now there isn't any mobile flash specific content; this will change and open up some new avenues for mobile phones and developers.

    Its not true multitasking, either. It suspends the app and allows it to perform SOME operations, at apples discretion, not the user.further, only seven at a time. That's not multitasking. And apple has said numerous times NO FLASH EVER. Seeing as there are already videos out of the n1 running flash, we know its coming. And it runs on sense, so those flash addicts have an option NOW. additionally as much as people want to speculate about the iPhone 4g, show me ONE piece of documentation or interview or memo from ANY apple employee. You can't, cause not a whisper of the thing has been made.

    Apparently Adobe doesn't know either as they the keep changing the dates. Because of this I do not trust Adobe to hit any of their future targeted release dates and this latest one is no exception.

    OMG.
    Expect it in the next 2 or 3 months. In that interview, the Guy did not express what he was trying to say correctly. He meant that the actual phones being released in the second half of the year will have flash already enabled.
    We shall receive it in 2.2.
    oh and btw, the flash on Sense is apparently Flash Lite 4, so expect a a better experience with 10.1

    the current flash player you can find on Android is Flash Lite, which is much much more limited.

    Flash Player 10.1 for Android
    will be released as a public preview during Google I/O end of may

    Flash Player 10.1 preview release for Android at Google I/O | Serge Jespers

    and a final FP 10.1 should be released in june

    the confusion of the release date is explained here
