Flash 10.1 beta 2 is coming for Android 2.2, 2.3 and 3.0 for today

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Adobe unleashed today beta of their Flash 10.1 for Android 2.2. It is supported on Froyo, gingerbread and Honeycomb pieces and promising serious faster performance.

This is still just a beta version and it is expected to have some bugs. But still, an increase in streaming performance is visible and it is well worth to try out the update.

Let us refresh your memory about the upgrades Flash player 10 (2). Play a YouTube video at 480 p is still hit-and-miss, while a 720 p clips is unwatchable. Even if you remember an update came out not long ago for Motorola Xoom, as Motorola claims required for the upcoming Flash 10 (2) update.

Adobe promises to remedy this with a more polished version of the update that is coming soon. Right now the hardware acceleration for Xoom actually is off and be activated with the next release.

Beta Update also promises to bring increased performance with dual-core Android devices running on versions 2.2 and 2.3. Not to mention a leap in performance on Android 3.0 for tablets. The latter should be able to stream seamlessly 720 p HD quality with the final version of the Flash 10 (2). This will seriously jeopardise the heat on the new iPad, 2, in our opinion.

Older core smartphones should get a performance increase, so do not think that you have provided if you have an earlier generation of droid.

There are no words on its availability as the update yet, but should hit the Android market beta a minute now. When it does, you should verify it, we know we will.
