Here's the rub: Adobe stopped developing the mobile version of Flash 8 months ago, so the companies that control mobile platforms are stuck with 11.1 and any security updates thereof. And then Adobe has to certify mobile devices to signify it's stable on each device, which, well, they don't have a terrible interest in doing anymore.

How about the Veer and Pre 3? Nope, those aren't certified either. That's not very...comforting from a stability and security standpoint. Especially since all Flash releases out on Android 4.0.x and prior have been certified for many popular devies, along with the BB Playbook and its 11.1 branch.
To expect anyone in their right mind within HP to update Flash to 11.1 for webOS is just downright unreasonable at this point. It's almost not worth addressing.
Citation needed. Ok, I'll cite Electronista:
...but Adobe has also said that whoever(manufacturer wish to incorporate) the mobile version of Flash Player v11.2
are free and willing to do so..
"The release of Flash 11.2 is the first since Adobe dropped mobile Flash and won't ever be brought to Android or other mobile devices. Adobe mostly sided with Apple in deciding that HTML5 was better for cross-platform, standards-based web support." (Adobe Flash 11.2, AIR 3.2 with 'premium' features, 3D boosts | Electronista)
Sure enough, what's the last version available for Android? That you can't even download on Google Play anymore? Version 11.1. (Archived Flash Player versions)
Playbook OS also runs 11.1, but it's baked directly into the browser and isn't available as a standalone product. It's also forced many OS updates to address security vulnerabilities in Flash, which makes their decision to bake Flash directly in a rather stupid one.
11.2 isn't coming out for any mobile device. 11.1 was the end of the road, full stop.
