HTC Hero, the new smartphone unveiled just hours ago, will be the first Android handset to come with support for Adobe Flash.
This will enable the Hero to provide a rich Web browsing experience, as well as access to a lot of Flash-based content available on the Web (videos, games and so on).
You can watch how Flash runs on HTC Hero in a video found on Adobe’s official website.
HTC also announced that it has joined the Open Screen Project, collaborating with Adobe and other 25 companies in order to “deliver a consistent runtime across screens and to provide access to all Flash technology based Web content in the future.”
“Adobe Flash is an important core technology for people interacting and experiencing the Web, it is only natural to be offering it on the new HTC Hero first. We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with Adobe and to bringing Flash Player 10 support to our phones in the future,” declared John Wang, chief marketing officer, HTC Corporation.
HTC Hero will be available across Europe starting next month (July).
