Flash Player on Android

Its already been more than one and half year, the first android phone, T Mobile G1 was launched in the US. Since the lunch of the phone, Flash player has already been demonstrated in several phones and its almost close to the release. Several other options are also on works for getting flash on the android for instance Firefox Mobile or Fennec, which is most likely to have Flash Player add on as well as the famous Skyfire Browser which plays almost all sorts of videos. After waiting for so long its really great to see all the options approaching.
