Adobe responds to leaked ROMs and Flash 10.1 battery concerns

Remember that video from yesterday that showed Farmville running on the Nexus One? It was shared all over the web and many people bashed it for the poor performance they witnessed.

The video even caught the eye of Adobe and they felt a response was justified. In a post on the Flash Mobile Blog, they noted the leaked HTC Desire ROM actually included an alpha version of Flash Lite and not Flash Player 10.1.

The HTC Desire will eventually support Flash 10.1 when it is made available sometime in the first half of 2010 via an over the air update.

Adobe also took the chance to address the claim that Flash kills battery life on the Nexus One. To prove their point, they uploaded a 17 minute video to Vimeo and reported their tests show that “video can be played for well over 3Hours over WIFI from YouTube in H.264 (Baseline 1.2)”.
