Will we be getting it soon? Is there an off market solution? On market solution?
No, there is no "off market solution"! And there will NEVER be a third-party solution. (I think that's what you wanted to ask in the first place.)
PLEASE HEAR THIS!
Flash is written by Adobe. And when Adobe wants to release Flash 10.1 for Android, they will. And we will wait. There is NOTHING else we can do. Nothing.
Getting Flash today is as simple as shelling out $600 on a N1, rooting it, and running the Desire ROM.
As for me, I'll wait.
it's not too crazy to ask if there will be a non-adobe flash. Ubuntu has non-adobe flash, so it's at least possible.
Yeah, but why would any developer start from scratch to make Flash for Android, when we all know that Adobe is already done with 10.1?
Possible? Umm ... yea, OK. I guess anything is "possible". But from everything I've read, the Ubuntu community isn't exactly loving their third-party Flash solutions. They would LOVE Adobe to release 10.1 for Ubuntu as well.
It's actually in public beta for linux
When Is 2.1 Coming, Anybody
about time someone said it loud n clear
PS kool avatar btw n u can add one more thnx to your record on my behalf
Honestly, how often would you use it? We have a youtube app, actually, we have an app for most of what flash would do. The only time I would have used flash since I got the phone is to maby play a game on addicting games or miniclip, or to prove a friend wrong that the Halo Reach beta comes out May 3rd, not March 3rd. Yeah it will be nice, but its no rush for me. However I would like the browser a little snappier. Come on 2.1!
I wasn't trying to say it was likely, or that it was rational to ever expect it to happen. But you said flash is written by Adobe, and I thought it worth pointing out that apparently that's not exclusively true.
My local radio stations' live broadcasts are only available in Flash format, unless I'm misstaken (WMMR and WYSP in Phila, Pa.)
So there's at least one reason I'd really like to have it.
Quite a bit actually. A LOT of photo sites use Flash. I always use Flash for my band's websites. Flash galleries are a great way to post a ton of shots from the weekend gigs. Not to mention that some companies have entire Flash sites that have no HTML option. My last band's photographer has an all-Flash site. Checkout Artistic Photography by Glenda. Now try that site on the DROID.
Where's the youporn app? It's really all flash is good for.
This one is cool too -- 3d/ Papervision running on an N1
Flash Player 10.1, 3D content on Google Nexus One on Vimeo
looks like all those zynga related facebook games are a slight fail on flash, guess they will improve with time.
I could access my slingbox, access my XM online account, manage my SIP clients, or manage any other online account with Flash based sites, which is about 75% of what I use the phone for aside from making calls, "without" having to wait for an app.
My online math class uses a very simple flash based website, would be nice to be able to jump on and do a few when im out and have nothing better to do. I already have Documents to Go for my english class.
The same thing that is up with a native 64bit version of Flash for Windows. The *nix testing has been going on for over 2 years IIRC...and yet nothing, absolutely nothing, for 64bit Windows users....
Not many x64 browsers though. IE has a separate one, dunno about opera, FF i think you need to compile from the repo.
