Adobe Bringing Flash 10.1 To webOS In First Half Of 2010


Adobe has announced that Flash Player 10.1 will be coming to a webOS device to you in the first half of 2010. Hope this will mean sooner (like January) than later.

On October 5th of this year at Adobe Max, Adobe Labs announced the release of the Flash 10.1 player and would be available in a Beta program to users. In a statement released on Adobe Labs website, it states "Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 is the first runtime release of the Open Screen Project that enables uncompromised Web browsing of expressive applications, content and video across devices. With support for a broad range of mobile devices, including smartphones, netbooks, smartbooks and other Internet-connected devices, Flash Player 10.1 allows your content to reach your customers wherever they are. A beta is expected to be available for Windows Mobile, Palm webOS and desktop systems including Windows, Macintosh and Linux later this year."

The Open Screen Project was institued by an industry-wide initiative, led by Adobe and backed by other industry leaders who all share one clear vision: Enable consumers to engage with rich Internet experiences seamlessly across any device, anywhere.

See the video below to see how the webOS will look with Flash 10.1.


Adobe still cooking up Flash support for WebOS, beta this year? [UPDATE]

Adobe is working on Flash 10.1 for mobile devices. Basically covering every mobile platform except for the iPhone. WebOS is on that list and will be one of the first. According to Gizmodo, they had a word with Adobe and WebOS beta could be out as early as this year with the full version to be released sometime in the first half of 2010. Adobe says Flash 10.1 will be GPU accelerated which will allow for you to push the little HD link in the bottom right of a Youtube video. This will be nice on the Pre since it is sporting an OMAP 3 with a pretty hefty mobile GPU inside. Adobe is optimizing Flash 10.1 so it doesn't bog down mobile OS's like current iterations of flash do as seen on HTC's newest slice of Android, the Hero.

Flash is being optimized for Mobile OS's with a touch screen and multi touch like WebOS providing full multi touch support as well as support for gestures and the accelerometer. Though flash isn't our favorite thing in the world because it can sometimes slow down even the fastest computers, Flash is a huge part of the browser experience and we are very excited to get it on our Pre's and Pixi's. 

For those of you who don't know Flash is what powers sites like,, and what allows us to hear music on sites like and It will allow for a 100% full desktop browser experience so the only difference between the browser on our Pre's and our computers at home, will be the screen size/resolution.
