I recently purchased a new Samsung Galaxy 2.0 Tablet that was supposed to have Adobe Flash Player. I spent the extra money specifically because I was told it had it and the box said it did. As a pastor, I am on many websites that require flash player so I was excited and pleased that I would have that with my new tablet. I had purchased this tablet just as I was leaving to go to my father's funeral who had just died suddenly so was not able to try it out completely until I just got back.
To my dismay, not only does it NOT have the Adobe Flash Player that is said it did on the box and was told by the clerk, but Samsung now informs me you no longer offer Adobe Flash Player for tablets! Is this true? Do you no longer offer Adobe Flash Player for tablets and why does it say you still offer it on packages of tablets being sold by other companies? Can you please help me with this? I spent alot of money for a tablet only because it stated it had your Adobe Flash player. Now I have something that does not do what I need it to do and no one seems to care.

No, no, no, no, no.... I seriously have a problem with retailers over this lately. They NEED to explain this to people BEFORE they buy a Galaxy.
Your Samsung Galaxy uses Android...
Adobe stopped ALL development of Flash for Android last year (2012) so it's not like this just "snuck up" on retailers who have been selling these for years. It's not your fault; someone sold you something without telling you its limitations. Unfortunately, Adobe doesn't make the Galaxy, and they don't print the packaging that it comes in. Samsung is entirely responsible for that, and they should have adapted the packaging to show the change they were aware of more than a year ago.
There are older versions of Flash Player (for Android) at that link, but there are no guarantees any of them will work.

I've read a lot about "Dolphin" for Android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.mgeek.TunnyBrowser
I've also read about "Jellybean", but not so much as Dolphin.
I'm not an Android user (no tablet or phone) so I can't make any endorsements that would hold any credibility, but most of the Flash solutions I've read point to Dolphin as the best alternative.
