Flash Player 10.1 for Android is now released to partners; requires Android 2.2 or higher
Adobe has released Flash Player 10.1 for Android to its partners. The player will run once certain Android phones get to upgrade to the 2.2 (Froyo) build which is expected to happen on the following 8 handsets (in no particular order)-the Motorola DROID, Dell Streak, Google Nexus One, Motorola MILESTONE, HTC EVO 4G, HTC Droid Incredible, HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S. Flash Player 10.1 was also released to partners whose cellphones use other platforms such as BlackBerry, webOS, Windows Phone7 and the Symbian OS among others. David Wadwhani, GM and VP of platform business at Adobe said, "We are thrilled that more than three million Flash designers and developers are now able to unleash their creativity on the world of smart phones, tablets, netbooks, televisions and other consumer electronics."

Figure out a way to block out flash ads and only give me the valuable flash content I want like videos and I'll start jumping on Steve job's back about omitting flash. Until then I'll live without flash

And -1 for the closed minded village idiot. Ads, although annoying, are a necessity so things can be available to general public for free. Such as Hulu, are you going to tell me your with Steve jobs not watching Hulu, ok....that's dumb. What about flash content games? Ebaumsworld? Hulu? Porn? Common deny your self the ultimate eases and pleasures in life to deny ads. Good riddans to you then. I'm not sure Id want to know a simple minded boring person like you. Have fun on your iPhone. I'm sure it helps to diss awesome features because your god (Steve jobs) refuses to implement real breakthroughs in technology.

In the process of calling SamTime an idiot, you made yourself sound like one yourself. Not everyone who owns or likes the iphone looks to stevey as a god. Android users like to call iphone users fanboys and sheep. However most of the ridiculously angry post are from people such as yourself. I'm pretty sure you need to get a life if you choose not to associate with people because they don't want flash on their cell phone....lol. You just sound pathetic

Thats great you had a burst of intelligence, you should save you energy for the drive through menu at Mickey D's. The guy is obviously being perposefully condisending regarding the most anticipated feature on phones since the internal antenna. This is the sliced bread of Advanced device featurettes. To slam it is merely a cry for attention, so people will dispute him and argue with village idiot girl freinds i.e. Hallucinator (great name, fail).

On a serious note. I just don't get it. I really enjoy technology. I like all os phones. I've owned the N1, HD2, Iphones etc. Something nice about all of them. Why get upset because someone has a preference?

because some people choose to buy a phone for all the wrong reasons.

The fact that you think you know the right and wrong reasons for someone else to buy anything is a joke

it is obvious that MOST or SOME people who get an iphone get it for the wrong reasons because technologically savvy people are better off wit better phones. Iphones are for girls who cant figure anything out. An ipod for instance became very popular because of its ease of use. iphone is popular because its a trend, there are better phones out there, apple is just a trend. Even ipods have become commodities, they are in vending machines in department stores, "dont forget your ipod on the way out" the sad thing is now, mp3 players are referred to as ipods because of its popularity in the mp3 market. if i dont make sense too bad! going off on tangents is what i like to do.

And it has nothing to do with the OS or whatever phone, it has to do with disgus up there being a sally little prick about flash 10.1 . It's finally out on phones and he said some smart ass BS like blah blah blah who cares Steve jobs ads and I love Steve jobs. It's like shut up...don't support the idiot who limits your iPhone but makeing a just cause statement. That's a girl whiney batch statement. Yeah, I said batch.

I have the HTC ARIA and unlike iphone my browser lets me watch embedded videos without this update - can't wait for 2.2, though. Or, I can sideload SKYFIRE 2.0 beta...

I have an Aria also. There is a leaked update for 2.2 for it. It works perfect.http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=817895&page=1
