Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Available for Mobile Platform Partners

No longer a beta project, Adobe has officially announced the availability of the Flash Player 10.1 today.  This means that developers and partners are now hard at work to bring us “rich applications and content inside the browser including games, animations, rich Internet applications (RIAs), data presentations and visualizations, ecommerce, music, video, audio and more” to our Android phones and devices.  In a nutshell, we’ll be seeing the true Internet on our phones.

Designed for handsets running Android 2.2 Froyo and above, the potential for applications and games has gone up by the tune of over 3 million developers.  Content partners including CNET.com, HBO, JustinTV, Mattel, Turner, Nickelodeon, Photobucket, South Park Studios, USA Network, Viacom, Warner Brothers are already optimizing Flash content for smaller screens.  For more information, be sure to hit up the official press release!

    Most of those sites I was already able to watch video on VIA Skyfire on my HTC Incredible! I watch SouthParkStudios.com episodes all the time! The only problem is you definitely need FULL Bars on 3G or Wifi to stream them properly.

      Hulu blocks all mobile access, so.. not normally.

      But it's based on the browser's user agent, so it's easy to circumvent without any crazy of crazy hackery needed. Search for "hulu froyo" in Google for solutions.

    If Adobe invested the same amount of money and time into actually advancing Flash that they put into criticizing Apple's decisions maybe it would actually be a good platform. They are trying to get into onto other platforms when it doesn't even support 64-bit yet. All major operating systems have 64-bit support and most web browsers have already and are already transitioned over. Flash is also well known for performing great on Windows and not Linux based distributions or Mac OS X. They really should invest in what they have instead of making a fret about what others are doing and trying to engage in new markets when their offerings are not too well off, but it will all come down to the consumer really. Most will not understand the bickering between the two. All they will understand is if their browser crashes or if it doesn't as a result of Flash. How Flash plays out on the mobile phone will be an interesting sight once some benchmarks from respectable companies emerge.
