From Information Week

The announcement came on the heels of Apple's letter defending its ban on Flash for the iPhone and iPad.

Adobe, which has stopped developing its ubiquitous Flash multimedia player for the Apple iPhone, says it will release in June a new version of the software for competing smartphones running Google's Android operating system.



Kevin Lynch, chief technology officer for Adobe, announced the release schedule late Thursday, just hours after Apple chief executive Steve Jobs posted an open letter defending the company's Flash ban as driven by the poor performance of Adobe's technology on mobile devices. The one-time close partners have become combatants, with Adobe defending Flash for use beyond the PC and Apple saying emerging Web technologies, particularly HTML5, are far better alternatives.

Lynch said in the company's blog that Adobe would release the new Flash Player 10.1 for Android phones as a public preview at the Google I/O conference May 19-20 in San Francisco. The general release is expected in June.

"From that point on, an ever increasing number and variety of powerful, Flash-enabled devices will be arriving which we hope will provide a great landscape of choice," Lynch said in a thinly veiled dig at Apple.
