Adobe Flash hits over 1 million downloads on Android

According to ZDNet, Adobe has achieved over 1 million downloads of Flash Player 10.1 on the Android Market. Adobe Flash Player 10.1 launched in August 2010 just a couple of months after Google first released Android OS 2.2 (codenamed Froyo) to OEM's.

Flash Player 10.1 works on a large range of Android based devices, as long as they running the Android 2.2 mobile operating system. It is far from perfect though as battery time still drops drastically when in use, a number of sites still suffer from crashes, and some flash based content is still unable to run. However the 1 million plus downloads seem to prove that many users still want Flash on a mobile device, something that Apple are strongly against in regards to the iPhone.

Adobe will be hosting its Max 2010 developer conference from October 23 to October 27 in Los Angeles. The company plans to use the event to promote the mobile capabilities of Flash and discuss the AIR platform for mobile devices. Adobe also launched the AIR software platform for Android very recently, but AIR’s SDK for developers won’t be available until later in the year so software supporting it will be a while away.
