Flash Player 10.2 for Android release date set

OK – earlier this week we announced the “Beta” release of Flash Player 10.3.    Today we are announcing that Flash Player 10.2 (for Android) will be available for download via Android Market on March 18 (one more week). This new release of the mobile version of Flash Player 10.2 is a production GA (General Availability) release for Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices that meet the Flash Player hardware system requirements.  What is very cool is that this is also initially a beta release for Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablets.

Adobe has been working very closely with Google to ensure tight integration between Flash Player 10.2 and new OS and browser capabilities in Android 3.0.  The March 18th beta release of Flash Player 10.2 in conjunction with Google’s first system update to Android 3.0  (version 3.0.1) currently underway for the MOTOROLA XOOM™ will deliver the first phase of our work together.

Next week's release will feature Stage Video which will provide a superior playback experience for video on mobile devices.  There are also some other changes but the majority are deeper under the hood.  


  1. Sadly Stage Video will not be included for Froyo and Gingerbread devices. It's only for 3.0 devices. So "the update will only provide a superior playback experience for video on tablet devices" would be more valid unfortunately.

  2. The final details are still being worked out. I am curious to see what happens tomorrow too. Your point is very valid.
