Adobe CEO: “Flash Coming to Android Second Half of Year”
Here we go again. The on-again-off-again rumors of whether Flash is coming to Android took a turn for the good today. Adobe’s CEO Shantanu Narayen was on FOX Business speaking about Creative Suite 5 (CS5) when the subject switched to mobile.
We have a number of excited partners who are working aggressively with us to bring Flash to their devices, whether they be smartphones as well as handsets, and so companies like Google or RIM or Palm are going to be releasing versions of Flash on smartphones and tablets in the second half of the year.
This has been a long time coming for many of our readers. Some of you have been more vocal than others in you desire to have the full Flash player on your phone. Others don’t care so much. Hopefully, in over the next few months you’ll all be happy with your options.
There is one thing to keep in mind for those of you with older Android phones. Most of the handsets released so far, save for the Nexus One and Droid, don’t have the prerequisite ARM v7 (Cortex) needed for Flash 10.1. So, depending on how bad you want Flash, you might be buying a new phone.
