Adobe says Motorola DROID to get Flash 10.1; DROID and Cliq to also upgrade to Android 2.1
Things are rapidly falling into place for the Motorola DROID. Adobe's blog today says that Flash 10.1 is indeed coming to Verizon's flagship model as expected. Adobe has made a nice little video that shows some of the things that the software will enable DROID owners to see including flash animation and video on web sites for the NY Times and the BBC respectively. But wait...there's more! AndroidSpin says it has a source at Verizon that tells them that the DROID will be getting an upgrade to Android 2.1. When? (Better be sitting down) the site says the upgrade will be available in the next few days! And Android Central reports that a second maintenance update for the handset is forthcoming. (The site also says that the Cliq will also be getting the upgrade to Android 2.1)

DROID fans are a very devoted bunch. With the upgrade to Android 2.1 and after adding Flash 10.1, fans of the handset are singing to Nexus One owners, "Anything you can do, we can do better." Of course, there is the matter of the 1GHz Snapdragon chip on the latter device. Can DROID owners counter that? Sure. They point to the QWERTY keyboard and the 480 x 854 resolution screen. It seems that DROID vs. Nexus One will be a battle for the ages.

Yeah, the iphone platform is NOT, i repeat NOT getting a flash update. The folks @ adobe have released the "list" of phones that will be getting 10.1 and apple iphone is NOT on there. Steve jobs better start thinking quickly, or the 3gs might be the last of it's kind.
