Adobe announced the release of Flash Player 10.1 to mobile platforms. Already available on the Android Market, Flash Player 10.1 will be available in its final production release for all Android smartphones running Android 2.2 Froyo.
Some of the devices that Adobe lists as bound to get Froyo include Dell Streak, Google Nexus One, HTC Evo, HTC Desire, HTC Incredible, Motorola DROID and Motorola Milestone, and Samsung Galaxy S.
Besides up on the Android Market, Flash Player 10.1 is also released to Adobe’s partners for them to incorporate and preinstall in their products: BlackBerry, Palm’s webOS, future versions of Windows Phone, LiMo, MeeGo and Symbian OS are all expected to start chewing Flash content online like only desktop machines could before.
Flash Player makes use of virtually every mobile CPU currently available on the market so it will be compatible with many smartphones. Additional features would allow it to integrate even better offering a seamless experience.
- For instance, support for on-board accelerometers will allow automation switching between portrait and landscape screen orientation.
- Flash Player will also pause automatically upon incoming calls or when switching from the browser to another application. Once users switch back to the browser, Flash Player will resumes where it paused.
- The Smart Zooming feature will allow Flash content to run fullscreen on any of the supported devices.
- The Smart Rendering feature makes sure Flash content embedded on webpages runs only when it’s visible on screen reducing CPU toll and extra battery consumption.
- With the available Sleep Mode, the Flash Player will automatically throttle down when the device enters screen saver mode.
