Submission + - Adobe demoes Flash running on Android

recoiledsnake writes: Adobe Evangelist Ryan Stewart has posted a video on Youtube that showcases a preview version of Flash running smoothly on an Android Nexus One on a variety of sampled sites on the Web. Streaming video of TV shows is demoed on the CBS and NHL web sites and a couple of games are shown running with the touch features working nicely. All the web pages and Flash content demoed are normal desktop oriented web pages and weren't optimized for mobiles. Coming on the heels of Android sales overtaking the iPhone and a possible anti-trust enquiry against Apple, will iPad and iPhone users that want Flash be able to opt-in for a Flash player App? Or will all iPhone OS users be denied access to ubiquitous Flash content and video on the Web due to Jobs' whims? This may accelerate sales of Android phones(and future tablets) even further.
