Flash Player 10.1 and Droid X

I was at the Droid X launch event in SF today and it’s a pretty slick device. Big screen, fast, HDMI output for streaming HD video to your TV. (It also comes with a HD camcorder). Although the device will first ship with Android 2.1, and not Froyo until later this summer, the team’s demo unit had an early version of Froyo and we were demo-ing Flash Player 10.1. Of course, I work for Adobe and the Flash Player team and I’m biased, but Flash content runs great on that device. We were showing off Kongregate and Mochi games, replays of the USA win on ESPN, videos from Sony Pictures — and as long as we had a good signal we had great content.

Read more about the Droid X in the press release. Paul Betlem, Flash Player engineering, also discusses some of the specs of the Droid X on the Flash Player team blog.

Thinking about optimizing your Flash content ready for the slew of devices coming to market in the next few months? Start here.

  1. So i just recently got a Droid X and switched from the iphone 3Gs. Gotta admit i like it but i would love to know when the flash player will become available.

  2. same here. Flash would make a huge difference. Any idea when we can expect flash available for the droid x?

  3. I only bought this phone for flashplayer,
    so when can I expect to get It. I sold my laptop to buy this phone.

  4. Ya would be nice if they would give a release date. Flash would make a big difference. I also just got the phone today and love it besides the fact that it don’t have flash yet.

  5. Just got this droid x. Three days ago. Sounds like the notorious storm 1. Major dissappointment that this exepensive paperweight did not come out of the box. “AS ADVERTIED”ABSOLUTLY UNACCEPTABLE. I’M SO PISSED!! AND YET THE LAME OVERPAID TECHS AT VERIZON CAN’T EVEN ANNOUNCE A RELEASE DATE. NO ONE TOLD ME ABOUT THIS PROBLEM WITH THE X OR I WOULD NOT HAVE SIGNED A NEW CONTRACT. VERIZON OWES ALL X’ERS A REFUND ON THEIR DATA PLAN FOR DAYS WITHOUT THE ADOBE FLASH UPDATE! TAKING THIS THING BACK.

  6. The DriodX is my only excess to the internet I can even see the Demo of the new flash player. Why is it that some people have it and others don’t. This phone is nothing without the flash plus spirit just release it 4g with updated flash. This phone been out for a while now. This is humiliting

  7. I’ve been watching updates each month pushing back the release date. Notice a great build up of how great it will be by the Adobe folks, but continually avoiding the question of when it will be available for the DroidX. So, asking, like many folks before me, as we are now in mid October, when is this going to be available???

  8. I agree, anyone know when the date will be?
    Will it be a whole system update to 2.2 or just the ability to download flash?
