Adobe Flash 10.2 ready for Android 3.0 tablets

Written by Slobodan Simic

Possible for smartphones as well
During its MWC 2011 press conference, Adobe announced that its Flash 10.2 is coming to Android 3.0 devices like the newely announced Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Blackberry Playbook. The new version will bring support for Stage Video GPU acceleration, which should reduce the load from the processor and bring smoother performance as well as significantly longer battery life.

Although it didn't provide the precise date Adobe did hint that might come to both smartphone and tablets "in the next few weeks". Due to the fact that Flash 10.2 is limited to Android 3.0 since Google optimized the Honeycomb in order for Flash 10.2 to take full advantage of hardware, one can easily conclude that some sort of Honeycomb/Android 3.0 will most probably be available for smartphones as well.

In addition to the info regarding Flash 10.2, Adobe didn't miss a chance to brag that its Adobe AIR can be found in over 84 milion smartphones and tablets, with more that 20 million smartphones running the Flash Player 10.1.

Looks good for now, just keep it coming Adobe.
