Adobe has just released Flash Player 10.3 for Android phones. You can download Flash Player 10.3 for Android now from the Android Market.
Flash Player 10.3 has come as a surprise. We were not expecting it anytime soon as there has been no announcements related to the new Adobe Flash Player 10.3 update anywhere.
Motorola XOOM is expected not to come with Flash Player on-board. This comes as a surprise when all the manufacturers have been advertising that their Android tablets can run Flash content.
This was spotted at the Motorola Xoom pre-order site: “Adobe Flash expected Spring 2011”. Sad news, really. I hope Adobe manages to release Flash Player real soon for all the Android tablets.
Adobe yesterday released the final version of Flash Player 10.1 for Android. Flash Player 10.1 has been in beta since its announcement at the Google I/O in May, but they finally released Flash Player 10.1 yesterday.
Flash Player 10.1 doesn’t show any major improvement in performance since the its beta 3 release, but it sure is a lot more slicker than before.
First, Adobe showed Flash 10.1 in action on Droid X and now they have shown it again on the new Motorola Droid 2. Flash 10.1 will be pre-installed in Motorola Droid 2 and Adobe even mentioned that Droid X, Droid Incredible, Samsung Galaxy S line and Motorola Milestone.
Adobe and Googleâ€™s Android smartphone operating system are going hand in hand these days. The Android 2.2 update added support for Adobeâ€™s Flash 10.1 (something which Apple has decided never to include in its iOS) and seems like Adobe is returning the favor to Google.
We already know that Motorolaâ€™s upcoming smartphone, Motorola Droid X, will be out by the end of this year and rumors suggest that it will be powered by Android 2.2 Froyo. There is good news for all those fans that are eagerly waiting for Motorola Droid X and that is, it will come with support for Adobe Flash 10.1.
Adobe AIR for Android was first unveiled back in May, when Adobe started taking in registrations for beta testing of their cross platform communication tool, AIR for Android.
No, Adobe has not released it officially, but thanks to Droid-Life, we now have a working version of AIR for Android 2.1 and Android 2.2 devices.
Flash on iPhone and iPod Touch ported! yes, you read it correct! The guy behind the popular Spirit jailbreak for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad has manage to port Flash on iPhone!
You can watch the video after the break. That’s the Flash demo on iPhone!
Adobe has been demonstrated Flash several times on Android devices. The first time was two years ago on the G1, but everytime the release of Flash 10.1 has been delayed due to some or the other performance issues.
Most of these issues are because of the first generation of Android devices, i.e G1, myTouch 3G etc. and for that, Adobe has decided to drop out Flash support for these devices.
