Android device makers will need to change their marketing material. Future Android releases will not have Flash support. Adobe finally caves and focuses on HTML5.

This comes a bit unexpected. According to ZDNet, Adobe informed developers and partners that the stop developing the Flash player for mobile browsers. Yes, the one major big thing Android device makers were touting over the Apple devices is going to be history. Adobe takes Steve Jobs advice to focus on HTML5.

Specifically Adobe will focus its resources on Adobe AIR for all major app stores, expressive content on the desktop and HTML5 in general. Adobe is only bug fixing the current Flash Player for Android and RIM PlayBook. 

So Flash is going to be history, at least on mobile devices. HTML5 is going to be the way to make interactive web pages going forward. Note, that Adobe did not make any official announcements yet.
