Google Nexus One is the first Android based smartphone from Google and its hardware is provided by the famous manufacturer HTC. It has Qualcomm QSD 1 GHz processor which is pretty much capable of running Adobe Flash as stated by Antonio Flores of Adobe Systems. According to Flores only those smartphones will be fully capable of running Flash 10.1 who have ARM Cortex A8 chipsets. All other phones with less hardware capabilities will be able to run Flash Lite. As confirmed earlier, Flash 10.1 will be available in the first quarter of 2010. Here is a video made by Ryan Stewart, a platform evangelist for Adobe Systems who is demoing Flash 10.1 on his Nexus One.
In this video he is watching March Madness live on Google Nexus One over 3G connection. You can double-click on the Flash video to go into full screen mode. The video does seem to a stutter a bit but the overall Flash experience is rather smooth and quite in the flow as compared to the desktop experience.
Motorola Droid and Nexus One will support Flash 10.1 as they have processors powerful enough to process flash content. The normal clock speed of Nexus One's Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is approx 1Ghz and after overclocking it can be increased 1.113 Ghz. Original clock speed of Motorola Droid is 600Mhz and after overclocking it can be increased 1.1Ghz. However the Qualcomm 528MHz CPU of HTC Hero is not powerful enough to run Flash 10.1 due to its low CPU power.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
