Android 2.2, (Froyo) Will Have Full Adobe Flash Support

Android 2.2 And Adobe Flash
Looks like Android is bent on going places where Apple will not or cannot go. According to Andy Robin, Andoid 2.2, code-named Froyo, for frozen yogurt, will have complete Flash support.
On Monday the companies announced the availability of betas of  Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash for Android. I am sure every self respecting mobile developer would have signed up for the SDKs.
Speaking with NY Times Mr. Robin indicated that, Android stand to gain on all proprietary systems like iPhone and RIM.

“It’s a numbers game. When you have multiple O.E.M.’s building multiple products in multiple product categories, it’s just a matter of time” before sales of Android phones exceed the sales of  proprietary systems like Apple’s and R.I.M.’s
He also was happy about Google's openness regarding the flagship mobile platform, Android and the development tools;
“We use the same tools we expect our third-party developers to,” Mr. Rubin said. “We have an SDK we give to developers. and when we write our Gmail app, we use the same SDK. A lot of guys have private APIs. We don’t. That’s on policy and on technology. If there’s a secret API to hook into billing system we open up that billing system to third parties. If there’s a secret API to allow application multitasking, we open it up. There are no secret APIs. That is important to highlight for Android sake. Open is open and we live by our own implementations.”
 Android 2.2 is code name, Froyo, for Frozen Yogurt is keeping up the tradition with former codenames like Cupcake, Donut and Eclair.
