Though Rubin was generous in sharing the Adobe Flash information, he failed to disclose even a tentative launch date for Android 2.2.
Android fans are now left in the unenviable position of knowing that Flash support is coming in the next release but still relying on the rumor mill to predict when the release might rollout. For those who are keeping track, the latest guesstimate points to a May unveiling,
