The processor won't support it. Samsung and Adobe have both confirmed this. 1Ghz and over sounds like the cut point in Android.

The question is, do we really need flash?

- Ads, ads, ads (DO NOT WANT!)
- Security holes galore
- Video sites that aren't YouTube
- Crappy flash games
- Ads
- Did I mention security holes?

All Hulu needs to do is create an app that uses HTML5 video and H.264 playback. Both are already supported in Android - that's how we use the YouTube app. With the app they would be able to get the statistics they need for commercials, playback problems, etc. that Flash provides for them.

Think about this - say you're browsing the webberbuttz on your phone and suddenly, everything slows down to super slow, Matrix-esque slowmo. That's what browsing the web would be like if Android had Flash support. Flash ads bogging down load times, flash website components bogging stuff down, etc. You know that sometimes glitch where you end up scrolling the whole page? Imagine that -every time-. Yeah...

@kalel3038

Adobe Flash 10 will not support first generation Android devices:

There ya go... How ironic as the article (which many sites have run similar items) points out that these were the devices that Adobe originally used to demo flash!

Frankly, I never trust what Adobe says when it comes to flash,

They claimed flash 10 was coming to windows mobile a long time ago, and just recently announced they aren't going to release it at all.. same with as you pointed out (to the post above mine) with android devices.

Ok fine, so Flash 10 is too bloated to run on mobile devices. So hey Adobe...Can we get Flash 9?? for crying out loud. That DOES run on Windows Mobile!

Actually, Flash 7 was the last official release for Windows Mobile (now there's a pissing match about Adobe making a Flash Player for WinPhone 7...) and the problem is that the devices have too little RAM to make it run well. Most of the devices that are slated to run Flash 10 are running 512MB plus in RAM with a 1Ghz processor or better.

Just have to wait till next upgrade to play Farmville I guess...

the cut point is not 1 ghz the reason we will not be getting flash is the processor.

According to Adobe, an Android device must have both Android 2.1 and an ARM v7 (Cortex) processor which includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon and the TI OMAP3 processors. Currently the only phone to meet these requirements is the Nexus One, the Droid will join it shortly after it receives the 2.1 OTA.

Somewhere between the time of "soon" and "never".
