Certain Android models to get Flash 10.1 by second half of 2010

Certain Android models to get Flash 10.1 by second half of 2010
Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen recently told Fox Business that certain Android handsets will be receiving the long awaited Flash10.1 support sometime in the second half of the year. Android phones must have an ARM Cortex A-8 processor which means that first-gen Android phones-like the G1-will not be able to muster up enough power to run the software. In fact, as of now, in the U.S., the only Android phones that could support Flash 10.1 would be the Nexus One and the Motorola DROID, although that will obviously change during the next two quarters as more high end Android phones launch.

I may be reading to far between the lines but basically what they're telling us is that if we don't hack our phones or there if no other similar software is produced then all other Android phones are obsolete outside of the n1 an droid?

If you worried about that, it sounds like you chose the wrong carrier....well atleast you'll have 4g to talk about, oh wait your phone wont get that either....damn sprint, well atleast....nope...oh I know there plans are cheap...I knew I'd find 1 reason.

i spoke about current phones. not carriers .i chose the carrier that was right for me. i already have some flash available on my hero... it comes with sense even if i was on verizion i would have an eris since i dont like motorolla devices... and me being a cell phone fanatic purchased the n1. i was giving a nod to those out there with concerns that use the other dozen or so available android devices. i know that im going to have to wait til for ever for the san francisco market to get 4g. and im upgrading to the evo when its out... so even if i dont have 4g out the gate my 3 g and wifi works fine for me... im not a sprint fan boy...

looks like skyfire is almost done with their browser for the Android platform. I have it for my TP2 and it works great. sounds like skyfire will beat adobe and release their product first ether way flash will be nice to have on the android platform
