Flash 10 coming soon on Android

July 2, 2009

The HTC Hero will be the first Android device with support for Adobe® Flash® and ActionScript® 2.0.

It will be a release integrated into the HTC Hero ROM, so there isn’t yet a version of the Flash Player that can be installed on other Android devices. A full Flash Player 10 will be probably released by the end of 2009, and it will be available also for Windows Mobile, Nokia S60/Symbian, and new Palm devices. Blackberrys and iPhones are left out, mainly because of technical issues (there’s the need to work on lower layers of the OS, and the iPhone and Blackberry don’t allow that) and because of Apple’s business choices, which try to push their own technology, Quicktime. Flash on iPhone is therefore not expected anytime soon.
