Adobe to send out Flash Player 10.2 to Motorola XOOM owners within weeks of launch
Earlier today, we reported that in fine print, Verizon's web site showed that Adobe Flash 10.2 would not be on the Motorola XOOM until Spring of 2011. With the tablet expected to launch on February 24th, that is quite a few weeks without Flash for a device that is supposed to have high-end specs like dual-core processors and Android 3.0. Flash is one of the things that high-end Android tablet users have to differentiate themselves from the Apple iPad.

The good news is that apparently, Motrorola XOOM owners won't have to wait terribly long for their upgrade. On the Adobe Flash blog it says, "Adobe will offer Flash Player 10.2 preinstalled on some tablets and as an OTA download on others within a few weeks of Android 3 (Honeycomb) devices becoming available, the first of which is expected to be the Motorola Xoom." So the players involved are all working on it and while it might feel naked to be walking around with a tablet like the XOOM without having Flash, it is looking more and more like a very temporary situation that will be resolved quickly.
