One significant advantage that Google Android has over App iOS is Flash support, however according to one Google Nexus One user there is a flaw with Flash 10.1 player for Android, which could be particularly annoying.
Apparently Flash content will play sound regardless of what mode your handset is set to, which means even if your phone is set to silent videos and advertising will not be silent.
Currently Flash 10.1 Player for Android is still only in its beta stages, therefore it is more than likely that Adobe will patch this issue before the proper release, until then beta users will have to put up with the annoyance.
Have you experienced this problem? Perhaps you have found a work-around, if so, feel fre to add your fix in the comments section below.
Update: Here is what Adobe has to say on the matter “The silent mode on Android is for Calls and Messages only, these are considered interruption events. The Android OS dictates that Media players have their own volume controls, this is common across most platforms”, therefore it is not a problem with Flash Player 10.1, it is just the way that Android configures sounds.
