Droid 2, HTC Evo, HTC Desire, & more getting Flash Player 10.1

Smartphones like the HTC Evo and the HTC Desire have started to receive Flash Player 10.1 as part of the Android 2.2 “Froyo” update.  And, today, Motorola and Verizon announced the new Droid 2.  It’s great to see one of the first smartphones to come pre-installed with the completely redesigned Flash Player 10.1.  Users can experience the full web with millions of web sites the way they were meant to be seen.  Flash Player 10.1 on the Droid 2 is hardware accelerated and gives users seamless access to rich apps and other Flash content inside the browser like games, animations, rich Internet apps, e-commerce, music, video, audio, and much more.  Check out droiddoes.com for more information and watch the demo video below of Flash running on the Droid 2.  Many more smartphones like the HTC Incredible, the Samsung Galaxy S, Motorola Milestone, Droid X and others will support Flash Player 10.1 in the following weeks.  We’ll keep you posted.

    i thought Flash v10.1 for FroYo is still in beta, however this article makes me think it’s now out of beta for Android phones like Droid 2.
    Is there anybody who can confirm this?

    Thanks

    Hey this is great and all but where is the update for the Incredible. I love the vague “following weeks” timeline.

    How can you claim that Milestone will get Flash when Motorola have yet to decide whether it will upgrade it to Android 2.2 which is one of the minimum specifications ((see Motorola Europe Facebook page). Also your own specifications say a WVGA equipped unit will require a minimum 800Mhz processor whereas the Milestone only has a 550Mhz processor. Questions on both of these points have been put to both yourselves and Motorola without reply.

    I have a nexus one with 2.2 and flash beta. It is AWESOME. It totally pwns iPhone.

    Apple shot themselves in the foot. You cannot view statistical graphs or analytics without flash. HTML5 is great, but FLASH is here to stay.

    Can anyone comment on the camera quality for the Droid 2? I’m disappointed in the Droid X. I depend heavily on the camera Thanks,

    i have always wanted to use flash on my mobile but never had the chance to until I bought my new Droid phone and I am very excited about all the websites that I can now view because of it.

    I have a Motorola Droid….received my Verizon issued upgrade to 2.2 on Saturday morning. And the Adobe systems on my phone say Flash will be available soon. Soon with Verizon could be tomorrow or 2 months from now….my husband has yet to receive his update on his phone which is the same I have but from what I’ve read everyone should receive it by the 18th…..

    I just bought the new HTC Desire HD and I am loving it cause of the flash player available. I had iPhone before and It was pretty bad when I was browsing web pages that had lots of flash content.

    Hi,

    Is Flash Player now avilable for download to the Samsung Galaxy S mobile Smartphone? Everytime I try to connect via the phone, it says not available for download. If it is available, can someone direct me to where?

    Hi,

    In most cases, Flash Player is pre-installed, but if not, please download it from the Android market. Please note that you must have Android 2.2 or later installed to run Flash Player 10.1+.

    Hope this helps!

    That was great to hear when it came out. I ended up switching to the iPhone not too long ago. Now I’m really missing the flash player. Half the website I go to have flash. Some of the 3rd party flash plugins for iphone are just too glitchy
