No Flash on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Wired: Adobe has confirmed that it will not be developing a Flash Player for the next version of Android. In addition, the company said it will be pulling the Flash player from the Google Play app store; beginning August 15, only Android phones that shipped with Flash installed will be getting updated versions of the app. According to Adobe, new devices that ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are “increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store.”

Last year, Adobe announced that it would cease development of its mobile Flash player in favor of pursuing HTML5 technologies.
