When Verizon, Google and Motorola announced the Droid X, they said the smartphone would get Adobe Flash 10.1 in “late summer”, at the same time with an update to Android 2.2 Froyo.
This probably means the Droid X will be Flash-ready sometime in August – although it seems that it can already run Flash 10.1 smoothly.
Ted Patrick (Senior Technical Evangelist at Adobe) has recently demoed Flash 10.1 on the Droid X. He showed off a couple of games and an AP FIFA World Cup 2010 app (which will be rather useless when the Droid X launches, because the tournament’s final will be played on July 11, while the smartphone goes on sale on July 15).
Here’s the video:
All smartphones with Android 2.2 will feature Flash 10.1 support – including the ones that currently run Android 2.1 and will be later updated to Froyo (like the Samsung Galaxy S, Google Nexus One, HTC Desire, or the original Motorola Droid).
