Samsung Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0 doesn't have Flash

We're nearing the end of November and Verizon still hasn't started selling Samsung's mammoth-sized Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Well, you can add another thing to the worry list: no Adobe Flash support for the time being.

In the last few years, Android's prided itself for being able to render Adobe Flash content in its mobile browser, but with Adobe dropping support for it, Flash's entire future was up in the air for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Although Galaxy Nexuses that have shipped out don't have Flash support, Adobe will give it one last hurrah for Android 4.0 ICS "before the end of this year.

Speaking to Pocket-lint, Adobe said that it'll "continue to provide bug fixes and security updates" for Android 4.0 ICS, but whatever comes after won't get Flash support.

Maybe Verizon is ironing out the last kinks so that it can sell the Galaxy Nexus with Flash or is figuring a way to install bloatware apps on it. We can only wait and find out. At least we now know that the Galaxy Nexus and its powerful 1.2GHz dual-core processor beat the pants off the iPhone 4S in performance. That's what I call some good stuff.
