Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for Android landing in June

by X10 on April 30, 2010

in Firmware, News

Android FlashAfter much speculation, it appears that Adobe will definitely be launching Flash Player 10.1 for Android in June. Kevin Lynch, Adobe’s Chief technical officer (CTO) spilled the beans on the official blog.

“We look forward to delivering Flash Player 10.1 for Android smartphones as a public preview at Google I/O in May, and then a general release in June,” said Lynch. With recent reports of Android’s next release codenamed Froyo (v2.2) sporting integrated Flash, we could even see this launch at the same time. We’ll keep you posted.

Adobe have just launched a Beta version of Flash 10.1 today for Android, however I think it only works on the Nexus.

HTC desire has now update android 2.2!!! motorola milstone’s got now update 2.2. samsung is getting it to 2.2. even older htc phones like htc hd2,legend, desire are getting this android update 2.2 and we still waiting for 2.1!!!

i say fuck these fools sony ericsson punks give us freakin 2.2 and NOT 2.1 and you better put flash player on it son!!

8 adam September 13, 2010 at 4:17 PM

if all these rumors are true then why isnt Sony doing something about it?…Sony used to be the leading phone but now they are way behind, can you please explain yourselves to all you loyal customers on why you still have not met your deadlines, people are losing faith in Sony its about time they stopped talking about it and put it into action

9 Nebstewart September 13, 2010 at 8:58 PM

im sick of changing phone to get something better then i find out its not as good as its ment to be i have the x10i and im tempted to be a sheep and get a dam iphone!!! im hoping the flash player comes out before xmas otherwise ill be asking father christmas for iphone v4

10 mrey September 24, 2010 at 8:32 PM

I m a big fan of sony and a loyal custumer but honestly the xperia is disapponting cus sony is still not updating to 2.1 and other brands are on 2.2 sony was a leading brand in phone but now its getting back in race. Im thinking about replecing my x 10 to htc or I phone.

11 jazlle September 25, 2010 at 4:48 PM

when will the xperia x10 mini will have flash player, can’t watch anime

12 matt September 26, 2010 at 12:26 AM

adobe has lounch a flash player for android but it is not goona work on any of sony xperia phone bcouse it suports android 2.2 and sony is not even updating to 2.1 so if you have x 10mini like me or any other xperia you gotta wait for a verylong time until we get updet android 2.2 sony ericsson is not risponding to flash player this is really sad.

13 MAtheiwsfsjdffaked! September 26, 2010 at 2:53 PM

The flash player only works on android system 2.1 and more and because x10 is 1.6 it will not work. So if you got x10 and go to Market you will not find it! but if you got 2.1 or more and got to market you will find it!

I dont know if they will upgrade the x10 (i hope so beacuse i got one X D).

I have been lookin for a system to replace the flash player but it does not exist!
I bet the one who comes up with an app to replace the flash player will make gooood moooney (the app need to be supported with all android systems or X10)

barrabas todos vcs.

15 FwP October 10, 2010 at 12:53 PM

its already 10.10.10 and still no sign of flash players or 2.1. both apple and sony are toying with us. if this persists, I’m getting the nexus one.

16 chris curley October 12, 2010 at 11:45 AM

hi i think we all need the flash player now on x10 to keep up with the times so come on sonny sort it out plaese

17 Dissapointed October 21, 2010 at 11:29 AM

@mrey I agree . I always believed in Sony Ericson. I had a choice between a x10 or iPhone but went for x10.

I can kick my own back side whe i realised x10 is still on 1.6 and doesn’t support multi touch nor will it ever. I’m realy going to sell my x 10 and purchase a HTC desire or an iPHONE!!!! Sony Ericson has alot to learn to keep up with HTC!

18 Adin Paratusic October 28, 2010 at 10:50 PM

Have they finished now?

19 Prem Gopalakrishnan November 1, 2010 at 6:40 AM

Its November now. I guess Sony is still confused about whether June comes after November or before… Seriously Sucks man…

20 NameFILIP November 4, 2010 at 8:02 AM

Maybe in June 2012, before the end of the world?

21 mrey November 5, 2010 at 10:37 PM

Bad news for x10 user we wasted our time & money becouse flash player works on froyo only & there is no chance for x10 to get froyo still we r waiting for 2.1 so htc or galaxy s is better choise
Sony ericsson is gonna lose all loyal customers cuz all x10, mini and minipro users lost there fate in se.

22 darkwing November 7, 2010 at 3:32 PM

Now when sony x 10 has android 2.1, adobe demands 2.2…
Best way to get flash player to your xperia x10 is to trash your
X10 and get yourself a htc desire… X10 is thr worst phone i had so far
Old os and single touch screen…. Feels like playin starcraft on a P3…
This phone is way behind most of the other android phones…

23 DiFen.M. November 11, 2010 at 10:01 AM

ahh…shit. sonyericsson, i loved you, but after x10 for more then 500 e, i’m fucking hate you… give us fucking fladh player and fix your fucking bugs. cant feel differents betvin 1.6 and 2.1… morans !

24 Maludaseek November 13, 2010 at 2:10 AM

Skyfire works fine on X10i 1.6. Flash supported.

25 Darth Marco November 14, 2010 at 7:38 AM

I’m on 2.1 as of a few hours ago, be patient I’ve downloaded flash but it’s not working yet. Apparently this is down to network carrier though and not the phone.

26 deepti November 15, 2010 at 7:42 PM

Purchased x10 instead of nokia n8 or iphone4. Bur realized now that i have done a big mistake. Voice of music player suckś, flashplayer dont work, touch screen is justto fool customers. To be frank it seems like sony is playing with customers loyalty.

27 bone November 15, 2010 at 8:03 PM

@maludaseek: yeah that play a flash based game please !?!?! you’ll see it wont work.
it’s a shame!! no flashplayer nowadays

wish i bought a iphone or htc with 2.2 updated

28 ken November 23, 2010 at 5:12 PM


29 hidden December 2, 2010 at 10:53 AM

Don’t be angry.
X10 is good phone in my opinion, but it’s true, that SE release it, very untuned.

I like my x10, and I have a few smartphone before. Flash isn’t important for me.
I don’t need watching flash video…How old are you? 15?

For information, i read a new, that multitouch will be support past new update in the beginning of 2011.

30 hideyournamehere December 8, 2010 at 3:56 PM

@hidden I bought this phone for a mobile solution for playing flashgames, watching porn, using grooveshark etc.

The SE User interface fucked it all up…

31 raghavendra December 9, 2010 at 9:07 PM

untill and unless XPERIA X10 is upgraded to android 2.2 i will not purchase it or i will go for other brand

32 menon December 22, 2010 at 11:24 AM


Are you kidding man….do u have to be 15 even to look at presentations or may be an official file

Mini is good but is not living up to its expectations.

33 Jamie December 22, 2010 at 4:56 PM

@hidden hmmm, i am 15 actually.

38 badnewsbringer April 12, 2011 at 9:52 PM

even if we did have froyo it doesnt work as we have armv6 and flash needs armv7 so no flash either until adobe release it or someone takes apart their phone and puts a new cpu in

Good and adequate comment on websites, blogs and other are some of the ways one could attract traffic to his or her websites or blog.

43 Annoyed owner of x10 mini June 12, 2011 at 4:13 PM

And that’s why Sony Ericsson sucks.

Merci Cédric pour ton feedback. Pour ceux qui ne le savent pas, aube-nature est un blog de photographie très connu qui traite souvent de ces problématiques.
