    The desire (Sense 2.1) does not have flash 10.1, it has flash lite. I've had the desire ROM on my phone, and its definitely flash lite, only works on certain websites.

    Sounds to me like they're trying to pull 10.1 out of it too. Are you sure it's Flash Lite?

    I stand corrected, I think it is flash lite, but it sure looked like a full flash player. But even so, hulu or other flash sites and games on a Droid is still big!

    I don't care what Flash it is. If it lets me watch Hulu, I'm satisfied.

    OK, they have hulu playing on it, so it may be full flash?

    Good point. I had Flash Lite on my old touch pro and it wouldn't play hulu.

    Adobe posted that its Flash Lite on the Desire rom, and that it won't be shipping with Flash. I just can't find where I read it, did a lot of browsing this morning.

    I'm afraid even a hacked version of Flash 10.1 won't help me. I want it so Sling can then come out with their client. Until Flash 10.1 hits more phones "Officially", I don't think I will see it any time soon.

    yeah, it plays any video you want from what i understand, and i have heard that its flash 10.1 beta, not a really great working version, but it does work with a lil patience

    With as long as Adobe has taken to being Flash player to 64bit browsers in Windows, I am not gonna hold my breath on seeing flash on my DROID.

    Even if I do see it before the phone gets old, I won't be surprised to see it so chock full of holes that it will allow drive-by exploits of our phones left and right.

    Pretty down on Adobe right now - too many fingers in the pie and screwing things up more and more every day....

    well adobe mobile and adobe pc is probably two divisions, so its hard to say. someone on alldroid told me that this is flash lite 4 which is essentially a beta build of 10.1, i believe

    alostpacket Over Macho Grande?

    Why does flash need more than 2GB of memory? pshaw john :p

    The market isn't exactly crying out for x64 support heh, it'd be nice, but c'mon.
  23. johnlgalt

    johnlgalt Antidisestablishmentarian

    Right. I counter that with The Smart Phone market isn't exactly crying for Flash support either.

    Been running a 64bit OS for 3+ years now, and trust me - we're ***ALL*** clamoring about Flash....

    alostpacket Over Macho Grande?

    Aw cmon, the practical difference between 32 bit and 64 bit flash is worlds away from, well, having flash and not having flash.

    You may really want 64 bit flash, but there isn't a huge chorus crying out for it.
  25. johnlgalt

    johnlgalt Antidisestablishmentarian

    Then you haven't looked around at the Adobe forums, almost every single 64-bit software forums, and other places as well....

    Those of us taking the plunge to 64bit, BTW, don't do it solely for access to >4 GB of RAM - there is a lot more to 64bit processing than just the amount of RAM it can access....
