    Adobe, please announce for WebOS real soon!

    From Phonescoop.com...

    Today Adobe announced the availability of Flash Player 10.1 pre-beta for the Android platform. The new Flash Player reviewer beta works on devices running Android 2.2 Froyo and up. The player has been built into the browser, and allows web-based Flash content to play and work as it does on desktop browsers. According to Adobe, the player supports touch gestures, accelerometers, and smart-scaling to fill the screen with content as on a stand-alone player. Adobe contends that most sites with Flash should "just work" though it has compiled a list of Flash-optimized sites with which the player works best. Adobe said that the player has been optimized to work with most major platforms and chipsets, such as ARM, AMD, nVidia, Qualcomm, Marvel, Intel, Texas Instruments, and Freescale. It can decode H.264 video on the fly, and includes a number of power-saving features such as smart rendering and sleep mode. Adobe is offering Flash Player 10.1 as a public pre-beta starting this week. It requires Android 2.2, which Adobe claims will be available to the Nexus One and Motorola Droid "immediately," with other devices such as the HTC EVO, Incredible, Desire, and Motorola Milestone following in the coming months. Adobe expects Flash Player 10.1 to become generally available to the Android platform and laptops starting in June. It is working to bring Flash Player 10.1 to other mobile platforms, such as Windows Phone 7, webOS, BlackBerry and Symbian, but it did not provide a timeframe.

    im sure palm has something come very soon so maybe it's optimized for that version

    Well the CPU is fine for the games. The big deal is the amount of memory on the original Pre. The reason why the Pre Plus runs better is that it has enough memory to keep 3D games open and do other tasks.

    Since I overclocked my Pre I haven't seen an incredibly large difference in the performance. Apps open faster, but the phone still lags, comes out of sleep slowly (might need to doctor) and has random resets. I don't think these are related completely to the CPU speed.

    But I agree that Flash will come out on the newest WebOS device (I think it will be a tablet before a phone).

    That's about the same time they said it will be out for webOS, but then again, they also said first half of 2010.

    Android 2.2, Froyo, isn't out yet and won't be for another couple, if not a few, months.

    What about non-Android devices?

    I think 600MHz+ class CPUs, 64MB RAM typically allocatred for browser usage, perhaps more. Things that would fall easiliy into the top half of smartphone. We'll try to refine further when we finish working on each OS.
    Flash will probably come for WebOS on the new Palm Pre which will have a 600MHz+ Class CPU. The current hardware specs of the Pre are too poor to handle Flash without consuming all system resources. 3D Gaming on the Pre is a good example. You have to reset your Pre or it will not work. The Palm Pre Plus will probably perform better, but still the CPU is not there.

    Maybe. But I have a feeling that when we get flash on a cell we'll finally realize how little we need it (and how troublesome it is).

    My hopes is flash on Android/WebOS tablets where it will have the power/batt to actually handle flash properly.

    Technically the Pre already has the framework for flash, just waiting on the plugin from Adobe. Adobe needs to get on this.

    Or maybe 1.4.5 clears up some lose ends for Flash that might have been missed in the previous update.

    Pretty much, but hopefully that will change a bit after the HP buyout is complete. Also, the 3 most high profile phones outside of the iPhone are the N1, the Droid Incredible and the Evo. It would be bad business for Adobe to ignore them.

    Not true. The Palm Pre and Motorola Droid have the same processor. The Plus even has more RAM.

    I don't know what you are talking about. I have never had to reset my Pre before running a 3D game.

    the practical side of me wants to believe that adobe sees more benefit in the android version so that is where the put their resources. But with all the fragmentation in the android platform, I have to guess it was EASIER to make flash run on webos. So why has it not released??

    the conspiracy theorist in me believes that google cut a deal to get flash released on android first. The webos version has been shelved for all this time to give android the headlines. This fits well with both google and adobe anti-apple campaigns and it is the only reason I can see that makes sense as to why we haven't got it yet. The story for webos was a fall release, then 2009, then feb, then nothing but talk of the android version. I'm tellin ya, google cut a deal with adobe.

    It was pretty common to have to do a Luna restart to free up memory to play some games, although it's gotten better. Some apps still trigger it, though. Glyder does for me a lot.

    I don't mind waiting a extra week or two before it comes to WebOS. It is just a beta so its going to have some bugs and by the time we get it the number if bugs will hopefully drop.

    Well I have. Never had an issue with the dread Too Many Cards error until I tried one of the 3d game demos. So, yeah, I have to reboot the phone as often as not if I want to play one of those new fangled 3d games. Just because it hasn't happened to you doesn't mean it isn't happening to others.

    Where is the love? I thought webOS would have Flash 10.1 by now!!!
