Adobe Video Shows Flash Running on Android 2.2

Adobe has release the video below showing Flash 10.1 for mobile running on  Android 2.2, code name Froyo.  Android 2.2 is  the next version of the Android OS. The plugin now appears to run smoothly on a Nexus One and can handle most common use cases for Flash, including 3D, gaming, video and simply dynamic web content. Adobe’s Ryan Stewart also explained some of how certain elements work: users tap-and-hold on an interactive Flash component to switch away from manipulating the browser.

Flash 10.1 should use some level of hardware acceleration but still needs extra processing to handle the plugin layer. This has caused    Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs to claim Flash hurts battery life when playing video and why Apple has refuse to let it on the iPhone platform.    Adobe denies Flash drains energy quickly and others counter Apple  is afraid Flash on the iPhone will weaken their leaded since it is a across platform tool.  Beside Android, WebOS (Plam) will support Flash 10.1 soon.

Most expect Android 2.2 to get a formal unveiling on May 19th, at the start of the Google I/O conference. Flash 10.1 should also get main stage attention at the conference.
