by: Derek ScottAugust 16, 2010

Google Nexus One

Adobe has finally made available its Flash Player 10.1 to Google’s N1 users that are running Android 2.2 Froyo.  Beta versions have long been available to N1 users via the Android Market, but now users can get a broader scope of Flash support for things like video, games, and more.

Adobe announced Flash for Droid 2, HTC Evo, HTC Desire and more

by: James TromansAugust 12, 2010

Adobe have recently released an official video outlining the release of Flash 10.1 for the Droid 2, out-of-the-box. The reason why this is a big deal because it will be the first time Flash is available out-of-the-box on an Android handset. This obviously gives the end-user a far richer web-experience. The video reveals CBS and CNET flash elements and Adobe reiterate the ‘full power of the Flash player, just like on your desktop’. Of course, games are not excluded either, and the video shows Sims 3 for a short period of time.

Flash 10.1 is expected to start making its way to a whole host of different devices, including the HTC Incredible, HTC Desire, [...]

Android 2.2 Froyo coming to HTC Wildfire, Legend, and Desire later this year

by: Derek ScottJune 29, 2010

HTC Legend

HTC has confirmed that it will be updating at least three of its Android smartphones, the Wildfire, Legend, and Desire, with Android 2.2 Froyo in Q3 of this year.  Android 2.2 will offer greatly increased speed for applications and web browsing due to a brand new “virtual machine” for apps and Javascript engine for the web browser. Apps will run 2 to 5 times faster than with Android 2.1, and the web browser’s Javascript support will be 2 to 3 times faster as well. Adobe Flash 10.1 (and Air) support will be included in the update.

Flash 10.1 now ready for Android

by: James TromansJune 22, 2010

Flash on Android

In another piece of hotly anticipated news, Adobe have confirmed that the complete Flash 10.1 for Android is now ready and will also be shipped to other platforms soon. This news comes amid controversy between Adobe, Apple and Google, whereby Apple publically condemned Flash as an ‘out-dated’ technology and subsequently confirmed that they would block it from the iPhone and iPad. Google make numerous references to the fact that Android will and does support Flash and this is certainly something they have used in the past to get one over on Apple. However, despite this fact, they are working hard to convert YouTube from Flash to HTML 5, [...]

by: James TromansJune 16, 2010

Verizon & Motorola Droid Next Generation

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 X’ and the [...]

Adobe Reader for Android

Adobe Reader for Android

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 files, speed being a primary concern. The good news is that [...]

Video: Adobe Android tablet running Flash and AIR

by: James TromansMay 5, 2010

Adobe Android Tablet

Down at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, some guys from 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 technology.

Little is known [...]

Adobe Flash 10.1 for Android general release available in June

by: Michael OrylApril 30, 2010

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 at that time. It is possible, perhaps even likely, that we will only see Flash 10.1 as part of a firmware [...]

Adobe AIR for Android soon to be available for Beta testing

by: James TromansApril 19, 2010

Adobe AIR

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 creative and wonderful programs for us [...]

Video: Flash 10.1 on Android

by: James TromansMarch 22, 2010

Flash 10.1

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 be due the 3G connection. Who knows.

Either way, if this is the Nexus One running Flash [...]
