Flash 10.1 coming to Android in 2H 2010

We expected Adobe would release an Android beta of Flash 10.1 at last year’s MAX conference, but it never materialized. In a recent interview with Fox Business, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen said we should now see Flash 10.1 released in the second half of this year.

“We have a number of excited partners who are working aggressively with us to bring Flash to their devices, whether they be smartphones as well as handsets, and so companies like Google or RIM or Palm are going to be releasing versions of Flash on smartphones and tablets in the second half of the year.”Shantanu NarayenAdobe CEO

Flash 10.1 will require an ARM Cortex-A8 based processor or higher, which rules out all first generation Android phones. The Motorola Droid and Nexus One are the only Andriod phones currently available in the United States that will have enough power to pump out Flash 10.1 content.
