With so much buzz going around regarding the new Motorola Droid devices, we thought it was a good opportunity to do a round of of everything you need to know. Starting things off, there are two new ‘Droid’ branded devices coming soon. Verizon is set to announce the ‘Droid X’ on the June 23 and this particular device should launch on July 19. The announcement will come at a keynote event hosted primarily by Verizon and Motorola, but Google and Adobe will also be at the event. So what do we know about these two new devices? Both the ‘Droid…

Adobe has recently launched the official Adobe Reader for Android application. This is really something you ought to pick up, and is available in the Android Market. The only criteria is that your phone is running Android 2.1 or greater and it has at least 256 MB of RAM and a 550 MHz processor. Bad luck early adopters! For those that own a Nexus One, you will know that it already has a document viewer thanks for the folks over at Quickoffice. Depending on your affiliations, you might find that Quickoffice doesn’t actually do a wonderful job at viewing PDF…

Down at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, some guys from Zedomax.com came across the Adobe booth and upon inspection, stumbled across an Adobe example prototype Android tablet running Flash and AIR ‘flawlessly’. This prototype tablet seems to have been running Android 2.1 to boot. It runs Adobe’s Flash and Air apps flawlessly. That was the first time I saw Adobe’s Air apps running on a tablet and totally impressed by how it ran. And now I can understand why Apple wants to ban Flash and other Adobe products completely from their iPhones and iPads, because it’s rather incredible…

Adobe’s CTO, Kevin Lynch, stated in a blog post yesterday that we should see a general release of Adobe Flash 10.1 for Android in June: We look forward to delivering Flash Player 10.1 for Android smartphones as a public preview at Google I/O in May, and then a general release in June. From that point on, an ever increasing number and variety of powerful, Flash-enabled devices will be arriving which we hope will provide a great landscape of choice. This does not mean, however, that users will necessarily be able to make use of Flash 10.1 in their own phones…

It has come to our attention that Adobe are in pre-release mode for their most anticipated mobile offering, Adobe AIR for Android. Adobe AIR is a cross-platform run-time environment which enables developers to make applications once from any computer, and publish them on PCs, MACs, Linux, and then any mobile device which has the AIR framework. If Android, RIM, iPhone OS and friends all support AIR, then it really does mean that developers will only have to design the bulk of their application once. It will open the doors to masses of competition between application developers spurring on even more…

In the past we’ve seen leaked videos of Flash running on Android, but it has never really lived up to our expectations. For example, we saw what we thought was full Flash, but in fact it was Flash Lite from the HTC Desire ROM. Enough teasing already, we want the full thing. The video after the jump is alleged to be from someone who works within Adobe watching March Madness live on his Nexus One over 3G connection. It is difficult to make heads or tails of this clip, and we can clearly see some stuttering. However, this could simply…

Adobe has revealed some of the details regarding Flash 10 support for Android and the information is not very promising for those who purchased an Android device with older hardware or software. According to Adobe, an Android device must have both Android 2.1 and an ARM v7 (Cortex) processor which includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon and the TI OMAP3 processors. These requirements disqualify many current handsets including the G1/Dream, which ironically was used to showcase Flash on Android in 2008, the Magic/myTouch 3g, the Hero/DROID Eris, the Samsung Moment, the Samsung Behold II, and more. The showcase devices being promoted by…

Even for those that only casually follow the smartphone news wire, it is well known that one of the most contentious topics for debate as a missing requirements of any smartphone is native Flash support from Adobe. We’re heard before that things are set to change. Flash 10.1 is set to become available to Android devices in the first quarter of this year and this is great news. However, we could be set to hear some amazing news which will change everything with regards to all smartphone applications across different smartphone platforms. Adobe are set to make an announcements very…

Last week we showed you a video from Adobe showcasing  Flash 10.1 running on the Nexus One.  Since then, another video has surfaced, but this time Adrian Ludwig from Adobe is showing Flash 10.1 running on the Motorola Droid with 2.0 software.  It’s been unclear whether a device would need to upgrade to 2.1 before being able to play Flash 10.1 but this video answers any questions regarding that.  As you will see there seems to be a little more stuttering in this version in both embedded Flash video playback as well as an animated cartoon that they demonstrate.  Hit…

Today, amongst a barrage of Nexus One announcement news, Adobe demonstrated its Flash 10.1 player on the very device receiving all of the attention.  Due to the Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1 OS, the demo actually runs surprisingly well.  As you will see in the video after the jump, this demonstration is professionally put together by Adobe itself and is unlike the many “hack” or trick videos that are floating around the internet involving Flash on a mobile device. No word yet on whether this will be exclusive to 2.1, but we have to think that someone will be able…
