Flash Player 10.2 for the Motorola XOOM is pegged with a March 18th release date
As we currently speak, various Motorola XOOM tablets are being prepped for its eventual support for Adobe Flash Player 10.2 after an update recently began rolling out last night that brings forth the enhancements needed to gain Flash 10.2 support. However, it was still uncertain as to how long it would take for them to actually see an update that enables Flash support.

Well, Adobe has come out to officially confirm that March 18th will be the day when Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.0.1 Honeycomb will become available for download. Naturally, you can expect to visit the Android Market on that day to download the highly anticipated update.

Interestingly enough, the update will pack support for the Stage Video rendering pipeline that will offer hardware acceleration with videos encoded in H.264. Moreover, we’ll find a deeper integration with the Android browser’s rendering engine that will basically result in smoother kinetic scrolling between Flash and HTML content – which is a problem evident with some tablets running Android 2.2 Froyo.

With only a solid week before it becomes available, we’re sure that Motorola XOOM owners are going to be extremely satisfied that it’s right around the corner – and more importantly, it’s within the specified deadline that Motorola mentioned initially.
