Flash-less Mozilla Firefox for Android Debuts in Android Market Today

The quick red Mozilla Firefox jumped over the fence to Android's backyard.

In case you’re not fully satisfied with your Android browsers on your mobile devices, well Mozilla Firefox may (or may not) quench your thirst for some web browser goodness, as its final version launches to the Android Market today. Unfortunately, the browser won’t be coming with the Adobe Flash software. Strike one for Mozilla already, but let’s give the browser a chance, eh?

“For us, HTML5 and the open Web video standards are most important right now,” said Thomas Arend, Mozilla’s principal Product Manager. “Flash is a reality, though — I’m aware that it’s there and it’s going to be around for a while — so we’re definitely looking into it and will look into enabling Flash plugins in a future version.”

Adobe Flash 10.2 Hints Arrival of Google’s Android Honeycomb in Phones

Written on February 14, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Adobe Flash 10.2 arrives to smartphones 'in the next few weeks.' Adobe Flash 10.2 needs Honeycomb to work well. So is Honeycomb coming 'in the next few weeks' as well?

We still have no idea when the Honeycomb is finally going to hit our phones, and Google isn’t particularly generous in giving a definite/indefinite release date. But we may see some light from a source as credible as the OS giant, Adobe. In a recent Adobe event, the company disclosed that Adobe Flash 10.2 is coming to smartphones ‘in the next few weeks.’

Adobe Flash 10.2 promises lesser CPU use in playing web videos, thus theoretically giving better battery life to Android devices. But Adobe revealed that the Flash 10.2 can’t support earlier versions of the Android OS – thus Google needed to make some adjustments in their next generation OS for the Adobe Flash 10.2 to take full advantage of the device. And when we say next-gen, we mean Honeycomb. Are we going to see Honeycomb in the next few weeks? Well we hope so.

Adobe Resumes Work on iPhone Tool

Written on September 11, 2010 by Charles Bass

Let's all wish that the rift between Adobe and Apple will be over soon. Admit it, life's different without Adobe Flash.

Man, it’s really a good news. Apple announced that the resume of work on its Flash to iPhone system for Flash Professional CS5  is on hand.

Apple quotes:

Apple’s announcement today that it has lifted restrictions on its third-party developer guidelines has direct implications for Adobe’s Packager for iPhone, a feature in the Flash Professional CS5 authoring tool. This feature was created to enable Flash developers to quickly and easily deliver applications for iOS devices. The feature is available for developers to use today in Flash Professional CS5, and we will now resume development work on this feature for future releases.

But don’t think Apple is giving up. This doesn’t mean that Flash will return immediately.  Pharmacologically speaking, users are allowed to use generic systems for iPhone app creation. Apple frameworks remains to be better. We also think, in light of the new Apple App Store rules, that the potential  abuse of these frameworks are less. Even if it’s easier to blow up an application in Flash, I doubt that this burst passed the approval stage.

Yes guys! Adobe Flash on Nexus One is now available on Android Market.

Good news Androids! Adobe Flash is out of beta and is on its way to your Nexus One.

After a series of push, string of beta builds and whatsoever, Flash is stable and sturdy enough for Adobe. The Flash is ready for download at 10.1.92.8 directly from your Android Market, or for an upgrade if you are using just betas from your Nexus One.

Soon, the Motorola Droid users will be able to download Flash on the market. But as of the moment there is no news on how the HTC Evo or Droid 2 are going to upgrade the final build.

Our favorite Flash Games and apps are now free of hassle. We love Flash! Go team Adobe!
