Flash Coming to Android First Half Of 2010


Not much of new news here since we already knew Flash for Android handsets was coming in early 2010. If you didn’t already know, enabling Flash on a mobile handset would make it possible to play streaming video inside the browser. Online video streaming websites (YouTube and Hulu) rely on Flash player. This is something that has been absent in many handsets, but that should change come early 2010. Adobe claims that Flash content is present on more than 85 percent of the top 100 websites, and that approximately 75 percent of all web-based videos use Flash. The image above was displayed while trying to install Adobe Flash Player from Adobe.com on a G1 handset.  The message confirms that Flash Player 10.1 will be available to Android devices running Android OS 2.0, in the first half of 2010. Hopefully, T-Mobile will have a much more diverse Android lineup by the middle of 2010 that supports Android OS 2.0. Feel free to express your thoughts in the comments!
