webOS, rather than WebOS, is an HP-owned mobile operating system. There are not too many stories behind this adjacent logo because its initial release was just two years ago in 2009.
Very recently, HP announced several new webOS devices, with various versions of the operating system, including the HP Veer and HP Pre 3 smartphones, running webOS 2.2, and the HP TouchPad, a tablet computer released in July 2011 that runs webOS 3.0.
Let us have a look at the webOS features in the chart below and get to know why webOS is called the new ways to be amazing.

Sounds great! And now you can find the definite answer to the question: does webOS devices support Flash playback? That is for sure! webOS comes with the support for the Adobe Flash Plugin 10.1, so does the Flash content display!
However, is this the only way to play Flash on webOS devices? Absolutely not! There is an indirect way to do it: convert the Flash file to regular video/audio/image formats, which are easily accepted by almost all the devices no matter which OS it is using.
All you need is a Flash to Video Converter like this one:
And the operation is as easy as ABC. Step 1 to import your original Flash file, step 2 to choose your desired output video format, and last step 3 to customize other advanced settings and start the conversion.
