As we discussed earlier this week, Motorola just announced the Droid X for Verizon, which will include Flash Player 10.1 when the phone’s OS is upgraded to Froyo later this summer. Ted Patrick, technical evangelist at Adobe, shows off the device running Flash content. Check it out below.
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.
