Adobe Flash 10.1 for Android, BlackBerry and Palm Pre Are Delayed Until Fall

Android, RIM and webOS (Palm Pre) await the arrival of Adobe Flash 10.1, and unfortunately, even touch them wait. Bad news for the large community of users of smartphones, carrying enough time looking forward to hear something about this plugin. It will not come until the second half of 2010, According to Shantanu Narayen, Adobe CEO himself has admitted. No comment.

It is gone so the promise of Adobe including this highly anticipated plug-in shortly on various mobile platforms. We learned of this news thanks to an interview in the American channel Fox Business, which we can then see a video. It is also revealed Another disturbing detail that it not much satisfied users who had expectations of seeing Flash on their smartphones. The controversy is served.

This extra detail is that, at least on Android, We need to have a device that has at least an ARM Cortex-A8 Processor or higher to have a full Flash support. That is, Google Nexus One or Motorola Droid/Milestone on, What happens with the lower terminals?

These words were collected on the occasion of an interview as a result of the exit of the new Adobe CS5 suite. The most relevant phrases that delivered the CEO during the interview they were these:

“We have a large number of dedicated partners who are working hard with us to bring Flash to their devices, […]” so companies like Google or RIM and Palm released versions of Flash in smartphones and tablets in the second half of the year.”

It is certainly a huge disappointment for the large community of users who could almost touch with fingers (what a irony) the update that would allow them to enjoy the Flash content that usually enjoy on their desktop or portable.

On the thorny issue of devices with lower to the quoted ARM Cortex-A8 processor, a big gap of doubts opens. Probably pervasive community “Hacker” of responses to these users. Physiotherapy of Adobe, We have to think that the wait will be worth it.
