We have some welcome information for concerned Galaxy Nexus fans now, as a few tidbits of information has cleared up previous worries related to Adobe Flash support for Ice Cream Sandwich and also the internal storage memory that will come included with the device.
To bring you up to speed briefly, panic started to spread amongst consumers when Google’s product page for the Galaxy Nexus initially listed the device as coming with 16GB of internal storage only. This was obviously contrary to their unveiling which confirmed that the Galaxy Nexus would come in two storage capacities – either 16GB or 32GB. This then prompted speculation that the US version of the device may be given a 16GB option only, which obviously wasn’t ideal for consumers.
Thankfully, we can confirm that Google has now updated their product listing to show the Galaxy Nexus as coming with a 32GB storage option after all – so consider this problem officially solved. 32GB is only the ideal choice for Galaxy Nexus suitors so let’s hope that Verizon’s stock supply are in healthy numbers when they finally decide to release the device to the masses.
As for the Adobe Flash issue, we have further good news to report. We told you yesterday that the Galaxy Nexus wouldn’t ship with Flash according to a Google statement which confirmed that there isn’t a version of Flash yet which supports Ice Cream Sandwich. Now though, Adobe has responded to the concerns with a statement of their own, informing everybody that a new mobile version of Flash will release before the end of the year, and that it will be compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. Here’s the statement below, courtesy of Pocket-Lint:
”Adobe will release one more version of the Flash Player for mobile browsing, which will provide support for Android 4.0, and one more release of the Flash Linux Porting Kit – both expected to be released before the end of this year. After that time, Adobe will continue to provide critical bug fixes and security updates.”
So there we have it. US consumers will get a 32GB Galaxy Nexus at launch, and it will come with Flash before the end of the year via an update from Adobe. If you are holding on for a US release, let us know your thoughts on the news – happy or still not satisifed with some aspects of the device?
