Google Android 2.2 to get Flash

In a recent interview, Google [GOOG] VP of Engineering Andy Rubin mentioned that the next version of Google Android, codenamed Froyo, would get Flash support… “…He also promised that full support for Adobe’s Flash standard was coming in the next version of Android, code-named Froyo”

It is expected that Android Froyo (2.2) will be launched sometime in May due to statistics packages already starting to pick up traffic from the platform under the 2.2 version.

Also in the interview Rubin spoke about Android eventually outselling the Apple iPhone due to the iPhone being stuck to 1 manufacturer (ie, Apple [AAPL]) where as Google take the open approach and have a number of different mobile phones running the OS.

Parts of the interview can be read at NYT where questions about Chrome and Android are answered amongst other things.
