Adobe has announced that Flash Player 11.1 will hit the Galaxy Nexus before the year is out. A blog post on the company's Adobe AIR and Flash Player team blog announced that the "minor" update will make its way to the handset in December.

Previously, the company said that it planned on making the Flash Player available for the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform before the end of the ongoing year, and now they specifically note that Galaxy Nexus will receive it.

"To be clear, the Galaxy Nexus does not initially support Adobe Flash Player 11.1 and AIR 3.1," wrote Greg DeMichillie, senior director of product management for interactive development at Adobe.
"We will provide a minor update to the runtimes to support the Galaxy Nexus in December."

As we previously communicated in a blog post, devices and software updates from our partners which introduce new technologies are being developed on varied schedules that are different from our own, which means that the Adobe runtimes may not always be optimized or supported on devices until a subsequent release.

Well, there you have it! Now the question is, when will we be able to get the Galaxy Nexus in our hands?!
