Flash 10.1 for mobiles now available

Ok, we have some good news and some bad news. First the good news, which is the availability of Flash 10.1 for mobiles from Adobe. The bad news? Well, right now, you'll struggle to find a handset to run it.

According to Pocket Lint, while the software is available to download, it's only available to smartphones and tablets that run Android 2.2, aka Froyo. As you may be aware, that was launched back in May, but as yet, it isn't officially available. So unless you have a test phone, you can't get it.

But that's only a temporary blip, with a host of phones expected to get an update to 2.2 in the near future - the Dell Streak, HTC Evo, HTC Desire, HTC Incredible, Motorola Droid, Motorola Milestone and the Samsung Galaxy S for example. So good for the future, not so great now.

Not just Android either, with Adobe claiming Flash 10.1 has also been released to other mobile platforms including BlackBerry OS, webOS, LiMo, MeeGo and Symbian, although it's not been seen 'in public' on any of those devices as yet. Obviously you can forget about it appearing on any Apple device in the near or indeed distant future unless Steve Jobs has a serious change of heart. We're not holding our breath on that one.
