Adobe has posted a new video online showcasing Flash Player 10.1 running on the upcoming Motorola Droid 2.
Android 2.2 comes with Flash 10.1 support, but current smartphones which running latest version of Google's operating systems still require users to download and install the Flash plug-in separately before getting full access to Flash content.
The Droid 2 uses Android 2.2, but Adobe has clarified that there is no need for any additional downloads before Flash compatibility is available on the device when it’s released.
Adobe also revealed that Flash on Droid 2 is hardware accelerated, so Flash-based videos and games will look great and work smoothly from the native browser.
The speed of Flash on the Droid 2 has renewed the debate over why Apple really chose to remove all affiliation and compatibility with the platform from the iPhone.
Apple originally claimed that Flash would cause the smartphones to crawl along, but the Droid 2 proves that this is clearly not the case.
