Adobe ships final version of Flash 10.1 for Android

It's been long known that Adobe has been working on Flash for the Android platform. In spite of all the drama surrounding their move into the mobile space, Adobe has stood firm in their commitment to providing users with the content they're accustomed to on their PCs, even when they're on the go.

PCMag is reporting that Adobe has finally unleashed Flash 10.1 for mobile to its partners across the globe. Soon, the app will be downloadable via the Android Market for users running Android 2.2 (Froyo). Until now, Adobe had a beta version of Flash 10.1 available for the select few testing out the unofficial release of Froyo. Despite the small number of users actually running Froyo, the app quickly became one of the most downloaded free applications in the Android Market.

To all those who may be concerned, Adobe has made their progress in tweaking this version of Flash crystal clear. Improvements have been made in overall performance, battery life, and memory management. Flash 10.1 will also be able to take advantage of a device's accelerometer and will also feature "smart zooming" in order to bring Flash content into full-screen mode.

Adobe also said that Flash 10.1 has been made to support BlackBerry, webOS, future Windows Phone OSes, LiMO, MeeGo, and Symbian. Flash will be available on many of these mobile devices as a pre-installed application. For devices that have already been released, an over-the-air download will be made available in the coming months.
