BSQUARE fesses up, says Flash for Android is coming

So BSQUARE made it official, as expected. It has announced that it has been hired by a “global tier 1 carrier” to port Adobe’s flash technology to Android. The thing is, we still don’t know exactly which carrier hired the company.

“Global” and “tier 1″ bring two carriers to my mind, at least: T-Mobile and Vodafone. Orange also qualifies, but it is #3 in terms of pushing the Android platform, having only recently launched the HTC Dream.

Sadly, the press release lacks any kind of time frame, so we are still, in all honesty, no better off than we were yesterday. Adobe and Google could well get their own system to market first, and this BSQUARE announcement could be a moot point.

We’ll see.
