Upcoming Android ‘Froyo’ will feature full Flash support, Google.

In an interview with the New York Times, Andy Rubin, VP of Engineering at Google, confirmed that the upcoming Android 2.2 platform known as “Froyo” will include complete support Adobe Flash.

He also promised that full support for Adobe’s Flash standard was coming in the next version of Android, code-named Froyo, for frozen yogurt (previous Android releases were called Cupcake, Donut and Eclair, and are represented outside Building 44 on the Google campus with giant sculptures of the desserts). Sometimes being open “means not being militant about the things consumer are actually enjoying,” he said.

Rubin, however generous in sharing Adobe Flash information, failed to disclose a launch date for Android 2.2. But the latest rumors suggests to a May release.
