Yesterday, there was a bit of a fuss when it was discovered that the Motorola Xoom tablet wouldn't come with Adobe Flash Player 10.2 pre-installed this Thursday. Adobe has a response.

According to Adobe's official blog, over 50 tablet models will ship this year with Adobe Flash support. As for the Xoom,

Adobe will offer Flash Player 10.2 pre-installed on some tablets and as an OTA download on others within a few weeks of Android 3 (Honeycomb) devices becoming available, the first of which is expected to be the Motorola Xoom.

Sure, it's annoying that such a useful and almost necessary feature won't be available immediately. But if Adobe keeps its promise about a wait time of only a few weeks, then I think we can all be patient.
