Adobe Flash is required to view flash content such as videos and other types of media on a mobile phone’s web browser. On your desktop, most browsers come pre-installed with Flash player and if any new update is out the same will be downloaded and installed accordingly. The last version of the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 did not allow content to be played on most Android devices or tablets running on Honeycomb 3.0.
Recently after the much success of the Android Tablet OS, the Honeycomb, Adobe decided to make it more flash friendly with the release of a new version of the Flash Player. Version 10.2, which was released on the 18th, is still in a beta stage for Honeycomb, but if you’re running Android Froyo and above on your phone then you can use this in it’s final stage.
What’s new in Adobe Flash Player 10.2:
- You can enjoy watching the same web content that you view on your desktop on your Android mobile device, high quality videos, games and applications
- Tablet optimized, works best with Honeycomb 3.0.1, full web browsing on your Android Honeycomb tablet
- You won’t come across all those web-pages that say ‘ Cannot Play Flash Content’ anymore, version 10.2 takes care of all that.
You can download Adobe Flash Player 10.2 from your Android phone/tablet via the Android Market for Free. Requires Android OS 2.2 and above for mobile and 3.0 and above for tablets. You can also download it directly by scanning the QR Code below.
