Adobe Flash Officially Ported to ARM-based Android Devices

bsquare_logoBsquare has officially announced that a plugin for Adobe Flash will make its way to ARM-based Android devices.  This means people who own the T-Mobile G1 and HTC Magic could see Flash on their phones before long.

The next version of Google’s Android operating system, ‘Cupcake,’ should be attractive to a wider segment of developers.  Our Flash Platform technology browser plug-in will be valuable to OEMs building ARM-based smartbooks and to those who are developing other types of Android devices requiring a rich media experience that is fundamentally different than anything else available for users today. – Larry Stapleton, VP of Global Sales

It was reported earlier this year that Bsquare was working with a global Tier-1 carrier but the port is now available to any ARM-based system or handset maker working on Android.  Keep those fingers crossed!

    Another tech news site says this won't work on the G1 because of the processor. Adobe claims the G1 'isn't powerful enough' to handle Flash 10.1. I'm ready to throw the G1 into the garbage disposal and flip the switch. I've been waiting since October of 2008 for the promised Adobe Flash on my G1. Too bad your site rules state to keep it clean because I've got more than a few four-letter words I'd like to post right about now.
