With many news site recently carrying the news that there's no flash in ICS, Adobe has just confirmed that ICS will indeed be getting Flash before the end of the year and with that being said, ICS will be the very last mobile OS to have flash. Adobe will still continue to provide patches for Flash but moving forward, there will be no more Flash for the Android Platform.
This would mean that Google has to probably bring HTML 5 to the table for the next Android release OR perhaps adobe has some future plans in replacing flash with something else? As they said, time will tell. Sooner or later. Time will tell.
