Adobe showcases mobile optimized sites for Android

Google is set to unveil Android 2.2 this week at Google I/O and Flash 10.1 will be one of the major features that gets highlighted. Adobe is already gearing up for the launch by highlighting a couple dozen sites that are optimized for the mobile platform. The guys at TechCrunch were able to locate the landing page that users will be directed to after installing the new Flash 10.1 beta.

The early focus appears to be on video and games, the two cornerstones of Flash. A slew of games will be provided by Kongregate, MiniClip, and South Park Studios while video will come from Sony Pictures and Warner Brothers. TV shows will be available from TBS, TNT, and BET. Other suggested sites include Google Finance, Wall Street Journal, Justin.tv, and many more.

For a complete list of showcase sites, see the Nexus One and the Droid landing pages. Droid owners should be happy because I think this confirms our predictions that their devices will be among the first to taste FroYo Android 2.2.

Featured Flash sites include:

      In regards to Flash, it doesn’t much matter. You need a new device to run the new flash anyhow. :-\

    I heard that first generation android phones would get a flash lite to compensate for not getting the real thing.

    • http://twitter.com/aaronhutchinson Aaron

      I wish that 1st gen phone owners would stop being so cheap & upgrade their damn phones instead of complaining all the time.
      Even Apple is dropping full support for their 1st and 2nd generation phones.

      If you want these new features, purchase hardware that will be able to support it.

      • http://Website Daniel

        First of all, even the second-generation iPhones are older than the G1, the oldest Android device. Second, as you said it, it’s “full support”. They still can run iPhone OS 4 and enjoy most features.

        So, no, the situation doesn’t compare. The Android situation is sad any way you look at it, and dropping support so soon will only harm the public’s perception of all the devices in the market, past and future. Hopefully Google, the manufacturers and the carriers will surprise us in the next few months.

        I wish people would stop telling others do this and do that. Unless you’re paying for said hardware, you have no business telling people what their priorities should be. I have a Nexus One, but I also have enough sense to not tell people I don’t even know what to do with their money, or lack thereof.

    I’m hoping that HTC have got something planned for their devices… I don’t want to wait ages for my desire to get the update to 2.2

    • gratiz

      as the desire has the same hardware as the nexus one. it shouldnt be a problem to port it to the desire.

      • http://Website kramyo

        Its does indeed have similar hardware, as does the incredible but the biggest difference between those phones and the nexus or droid is that they run HTC sense on top of android. This means HTC will have to update their UI before phones with sense can update to 2.2. If you own a device running HTC sense don’t hold your breath for 2.2…it could be a while.

        Its sucks that this is the case but that is the reality. If you want quick updates to the newest versions of android, get a phone that runs pure android without a manufacturer or carrier UI.

        Furthermore, I don’t understand why manufacturers like HTC spend time and money creating their own UI. I have used phones with both the standard android UI and HTC sense and see very little if any advantages of sense. The standard android UI works great and is simple and easy to use. HTC sense just muddies the water, sure the weather animations are cool it has some integrated widgets but for almost everything that HTC sense offers stock, there is a suitable alternative available in the market.

        If you are in the market for an android phone, look for one without a custom UI, you will be happy you did. Just look at the HTC Hero, it just got 2.1 today, the day before 2.2 is coming out.

    I shot a quick video showing the Kongregate mobile site working on the Incredible. Not all games work, but when they do, they’re playable. Flash 10.1 should make everything Incredible :-)

  • http://www.iansapp.com Ian

    Flash can’t run on the older devices. The processors are not good enough, but maybe they’ll put flash light on the older devices

    Also, I’m sure flash will be ported to Rooted firmwares soon anyway

    So far we know that Nexii and Droid are going to have flash, but what about the Incredible? The Incredible is the top Android phone on Verizon right now. Verizon should be making sure that their Droids always stay updated!

    Layers are the big secret to making photos come to life. In Photoshop you can take several photos and merge them together to make it looks like it’s one picture. At the same time, layers will make your life as a minisite creator so much easier, you’ll save lots of time. You have to know to use video with advantage..
