Yes, one very important but underreported thing about the Adobe 
announcement is that while they removed Flash from they play store they 
continue to honor their contractual commitments to OEMs. That means many 
devices (from OEMs like HTC and Samsung) ship not only with a current 
version of Flash, but continue to receive updates.
