According to Antonio Flores of Adobe Systems only those Android phones will be capable of running Flash 10.1, who have ARMv7 (Cortex) processors in it as only these processors are powerful enough to process and run flash based video content on the mobile web. Out of 10 most widely used Android phones in US, only people who have Motorola Droid or Nexus One will be fortunate enough to view flash based video content on their phones. Flash 10.1 final version for Android will be released in the mid of year 2010.
You can expect the final release for Android to be available mid-year. All Android devices that meet our minimum s/w and h/w requirements will be supported. Unfortunately, I cannot say a lot more publicly about our port to the Android platform at this time.
As for WinMo, we have made the tough decision to defer support for that platform until WinMo7. This is due to the fact that WinMo6.5 does not support some of the critical APIs that we need.
As for your other questions:
- Yes, we will support the Motorola Milestone.
- No, the HTC Hero will not be supported b/c it does not have the correct Anroid OS version and it’s chipset is not powerful enough. We require a device with an ARM v7 (Cortex) processor. Examples include the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and TI OMAP3 series.
Acc. to the above scrap, only 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
