Motorola Xoom No Adobe Flash At Launch

Posted on Feb 21 2011 - 3:52pm by Kyle

Are you scratching your head reading the headline? Adobe’s flash is one of the biggest argument points in Android tablet over iPad. Well, as the headline suggests if you’re picking up a Motorola Xoom on Thursday you are picking it up without the benefits of Adobe Flash, which is available on many other Android 2.x+ devices.

Apparently Adobe hasn’t finished theirĀ  work on Adobe Flash 10.2 for Honeycomb and rather than tinkering around with software and delaying the release like Verizon/HTC is doing with the Thunderbolt, Motorola and Verizon are shipping the Xoom and upgrading flash in Spring 2011.

The good news is that Spring starts in just over a month. The bad news of course is it ends in June.

We’ll keep an eye out for you to let you know when the Motorola Xoom flash update is available.

    Is the current version of Flash for Froyo/Gingerbread not going to work with Honeycomb? Why wouldn’t it?

    I’m a bit disappointed by this, but I don’t regret my pre-order. If my experience with the EVO over the past 6 months is any indicator of what I can expect in terms of updates and improvements post-purchase – I’m not at all worried. In fact, I’ve found that the rapid pace of Android’s evolution – both official – and community-driven give me a platform in Xoom that likely won’t reach its full potential for another year.
