Honestly, there's not much to say about Flash 10.1 on Android that you haven't already seen, given how hard Adobe's been pushing the Flash-on-phones message. There's a few things.
Looks like Flash 10.1 is emerging from the beta depths and almost ready for prime time. This is particularly good news for you owners of netbooks with Broadcom Crystal HD accelerators, since now you'll be able to watch HD Flash video. The hardware video acceleration applies to Windows XP, Vista, and 7, though Mac and…
Flash 10.1 Beta 3 spreads the hardware-accelerated H.264 video love to more graphics chips, specifically some decidedly less beefy netbook chips: Intel's GMA 500 series and Broadcom's Crystal HD video decoder. Stick with 720p Flash video, and you'll be dandy.
The good news first: Adobe's promising Flash 10.1 is going to hit smartphones—Android, WebOS, Windows Mobile—and desktops in the "first half" of this year, a slightly less squishy date. And it'll come over the air. The bad part?
I love Vimeo's video quality, but unlike YouTube, it doesn't make my uploads iPhone friendly. But that may change: they've already converted all "Staff Picks" and HD video showcases into iPhone and Android-friendly formats, and say there's more to come.
A ton of good news about Adobe Flash 10.1: Full Flash is coming to Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, WebOS and Windows Mobile. and it'll be actually GPU accelerated, meaning you can play back YouTube in HD perfectly. But the bad news?
