One of the key advantages Android has over iOS is support for Adobe Flash. But it looks like you might have to wait until this spring to get that advantage on tablets running Google Android 3.0.

Verizon Wireless has posted a product page for the Motorola XOOM tablet, and it state that Flash support is “expected spring 2011.”

The Motorola XOOM is expected to be the first tablet to ship with Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb when the XOOM goes on sale Thursday, February 24th. That means it will have all of Honeycomb’s new tablet-friendly features including a persistent toolbar at the bottom of the screen with Home, Back, and Recent Apps buttons, a keyboard designed to work on large displays, and multi-panel views for email and other apps.

But it looks like Adobe isn’t quite ready to release Flash Player 10.2 for Android just yet, which means that on launch day the XOOM tablet will be Flash-free.

Update: Adobe says Flash Player 10.2 for the XOOM should be available in “a few weeks,” which sounds a lot better than “spring.”
