Yesterday news broke that the Motorola XOOM wouldn’t just be the first tablet to ship with Android 3.0 Honeycomb… it would also be the first Honeycomb tablet to ship with Adobe Flash, because Adobe hasn’t put the final touches on its Flash Player app for the platform just yet.

But while Verizon’s advertising for the XOOM says Flash support is “expected spring 2011,” Adobe has chimed in to say that Flash Player 10.2 for Honeycomb tablets will actually be available in a few weeks.

That means that while the XOOM will have to ship without Adobe Flash, you should be able to download and install it soon. Future Android tablets may come with the latest Flash Player preloaded.
