Today Adobe announced that it plans on releasing developer versions and, later,  open beta versions of its Flash Player 10.1 for Windows Mobile and Palm webOS smartphones by the end of this year, but that Android won’t even get a beta until sometime next year – 2010. That’s a far cry from what we heard from the company in June, which led folks to believe that we’d see the Open Screen Project’s Flash 10 player for smartphones, including Android, this month.  Heck, now it is saying that it won’t be until next year when Android gets even a beta version…

Adobe and HTC today announced that the new HTC Hero is the first Android powered smartphone to feature Adobe Flash support.  From the press release: “As the first Android device with Flash, the new HTC Hero represents a key milestone for Android and the Flash Platform. With close to 80 percent of all videos online delivered with Adobe Flash technology, consumers want to access rich Web content on-the-go,” said David Wadhwani, vice president and general manager, Platform Business Unit at Adobe. “The collaboration with HTC offers people a more complete Flash based Web browsing experience today and presents an important…

Good news everyone. Shantanu Naraye, CEO of Adobe, recently announced during Adobe’s ‘earnings call’ with investors that they will release a beta version of Flash Player 10 (FP10) for smartphones. The release will come during October at Adobe MAX 2009. We knew this was coming but now we have a set date and confirmation. “We are bringing Flash Player 10 to smartphone class devices to enable the latest web browsing experience. Multiple partners have already received early version of this release and we expect to release a beta version for developers at our Max conference in October. Google’s Android, Nokia’s…

We’ve already posted on the possibility of Dell shipping mobile phones sporting Android as the OS of choice. However, rumours are running rampant on the interwebs at the moment, with various sources reporting that BSQUARE may in fact be porting Flash Lite to Dell netbooks, and a big cover up from WSJ reporting that the original announcement “shouldn’t have been made.” According to Dell spokesman Andrew Bowins, the report was published “in error,” though he didn’t deny the content of the announcement. What a mess! “Dell constantly assesses new technologies as part of managing our product development process and for…

BSQUARE fesses up, says Flash for Android is coming

So BSQUARE made it official, as expected.  It has announced that it has been hired by a “global tier 1 carrier” to port Adobe’s flash technology to Android.  The thing is, we still don’t know exactly which carrier hired the company. “Global” and “tier 1″ bring two carriers to my mind, at least:  T-Mobile and Vodafone.  Orange also qualifies, but it is #3 in terms of pushing the Android platform, having only recently launched the HTC Dream. Sadly, the press release lacks any kind of time frame, so we are still, in all honesty, no better off than we were…

My friend Peter Rojas, famed former editor-in-chief of both Gizmodo and Engadget, has posted to twitter a couple of statements that indicate that a major carrier has hired BSQUARE to port Adobe Flash to the Android platform. Presumably the carrier is doing so because Adobe seems unable to get the job done itself. According to Pete, we should hear some sort of official announcement today.

Great news for the Android masses; yesterday Adobe Systems announced that it will release a mature Flash player for a number of new mobile operating systems by the year’s end, including Android (Google inc.). A beta version of the software will be on display at MWC this week – and we’ve been waiting so long for it. Bad news for iPhone and Blackberry fans, however, as there is no news that a Flash solution for these devices will become available any time soon. With regards to the iPhone, Anup Murarka, director of partner development and technology strategy for Adobe’s platform…

As if the title didn’t say it all: today Adobe announced a port of its Flash Player 10 for Android phones.  In their demonstration at their MAX event, a T-Mobile G1 was said to have been shown running flash.  The release of a flash player for Android marks the collapse of yet another barrier that marked the line between mobile and desktop grade browsing. In addition to announcing Flash Player for Android, Adobe announced the upcoming release of Flash Player 10 for Windows Mobile 7.  You can already hear the iPhone users sighing. Update June 22, 2009: Adobe has confirmed…
