• Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on (video)

    The Galaxy Nexus (formerly referred to as the Nexus Prime) carries on the Nexus torch in spectacular fashion, and we've just spent a few quality moments with one here at the launch event. Design-wise, it's clear that the Nexus S DNA is here, though the rear reminds us most of the Galaxy S II. Those who abhor physical buttons will also be delighted, and while we'd gotten used to the whole Power + Home for a screenshot on the GSII, Power + Volume Down works just fine on this fellow.......

    Mutricy mentioned that while the company's new flagship device was designed for Gingerbread, plans have been set to introduce the latest version of Android in the start of 2012, with a more precise date naturally on its way. Given past experience, however, it's probable that the unbranded version of the device will get the refresh ahead of the Droid RAZR on Verizon, so US users may need to exercise a wee bit of patience here.

No more Flash support for Android 5.0, ICS is the last

Posted by Mohd Khairun Nasir Saadi On - - 0 comments



In a widely expected move, Adobe has confirmed they will bring Flash to Android 4.0. This shouldn’t be too surprising considering Google already expected Adobe to support Flash for ICS. Adobe confirmed to Pocket lint that ICS will be receiving Flash support by the end of 2011. Sounds exciting, but there’s a catch– a big one. Will will not see Flash beyond Android 4.0– meaning we won’t see Flash on Android 5.0.

We’re sure you are all wondering what the reasoning may be to stop Flash support. It’s quite simple really: Adobe is dedicating their time and resources towards newer alternatives. For example, Adobe clearly states for example they are “continuing to develop Adobe AIR for both the desktop and mobile devices. Indeed, we have seen wide adoption of Adobe AIR for creating mobile applications and there have been a number of blockbuster mobile applications created using Adobe AIR”. Moreover, Adobe hasn’t backed away from its intentions to focus on HTML5, which ultimately should be a more efficient way of impacting video gaming and premium videos. Well friends, we better enjoy Flash for Android while it still lasts.
