Android Flash

Apple may not think that Flash has a place in the mobile space, but it looks like Android users have a different opinion.  Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 has been downloaded from the Android Market over one million times, and while some users aren't having a totally smooth experience with the app, overall the community seems pretty happy with it.  Larry Dignan over at ZDNet noted that he's had some issues using Flash on his DROID X to access Disney.com and AddictingGames.com.  Adobe has said that the sites sense that the user is on a mobile device, so it doesn't deliver video.  The company is working to correct these issues.

Flash has definitely been a hit with Android users, and it's just going to take off even more when the Android tablet onslaught really gets going over the next few months.  One of the biggest selling points of the Android-powered tablets is going to be Flash integration and the ability to access the "real" Internet, so hopefully Adobe can work out any kinks with the app by then.  How many of you Android owners out there are running Flash on your handset?  Any complaints or praise that you'd like to make?
