    Adobe Flash Player returns to Google Play store in UK, thanks to the BBC

    Not for long though!

    Links: Google Play / XDA Developers (APK for Nexus 7)

    Adobe Flash is available in the Google Play for UK Android users following pressure from a group of strategic partners including the BBC.

    "Flash Player continues to be available on Google Play for users in the UK for a short while due to requests from strategic partners," a spokesperson for Adobe told the BBC.

    The Beeb says that it asked Adobe to bring back the app because it uses Flash as the underpinning technology for the corporations BBC's iPlayer application and it is thought that the move is to allow users to still continue to use the iPlayer on the go on Android devices.

    No date has been set for when Flash will be removed from Google Play for a second time, and the app has only been reinstated in the Google Play UK store.

    [...]

    It looks like the BBC's move has bought it some time, but not a long term solution. (Source)
