Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.0
Adobe has announced that the Flash Player 10.2 for Android will be available for download for Android 2.2, Android 2.3 and Android 3.0 from March 18th. Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) users will have to first get the Android 3.0.1 software update to install the Flash Player 10.2 Beta app.
This is what Adobe has to say about Flash Player 10.2 for Android:
We have been working very closely with Google to ensure tight integration between Flash Player 10.2 and new OS and browser capabilities in Android 3.0. The March 18th beta release of Flash Player 10.2 in conjunction with Google’s first system update to Android 3.0 (version 3.0.1) currently underway for the MOTOROLA XOOM™ will deliver the first phase of our work together. This will be followed by subsequent updates, which will complete the optimizations and result in a production GA release of Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.0.
Some of the new feature highlights in Flash Player 10.2 for Android 2.3 / 3.0 are:
- Hardware accelerated video presentation for H.264 (Android 3.0.1+ only)
- Deeper integration with the Android browser rendering engine (Android 3.0.1+ only)
- Enhanced performance for the latest smartphones and tablets
- Automatic soft keyboard support
Flash Player 10.2 for Android will be available for download on March 18.
