Will Adobe Flash for Android Merge Online and Mobile Casino Gaming?
Mar 22, 2011
Flash for Android
The release of Flash 10.2 for the Android 3.0.1 Honeycomb OS could mean the merging of online with mobile gaming as Adobe and Google guarantee 100% compatibility.
The Adobe Corporation has released the long awaited Flash Player 10.2 for the Android 2.2, 2.3 and 3.0.1 operating systems.
Google’s Android OS system for mobile tablets, the 3.0.1 Honeycomb, has been specifically tested on the Motorola Xoom to ensure that the tablets displays Flash in exactly the same manner as desktop computers.
The performance improvements which Flash brings to the Android powered tablets and possibly smartphones will instantly open up a new world for mobile gamblers, as a large number of online casino games are written in Flash.
Both Adobe and Google promised that the Android Tablets will have identical Flash capabilities as the desktop. That would mean that owners of Android 3.0.1 powered tablets can instantly play at their favorite Flash based online casinos. The developers can begin focusing on building specific games that take advantage of the OS (including 3D) for Android casinos, instead of re-program and porting current games over to the Android Smartphone OS.
Adobe Flash cannot and most likely will never be permitted by Apple’s Steve Jobs anywhere near the iOS powered iPhone4 or iPad2 which may not be the best of news for iPhone casinos.
Adobe stated in their last news release that – “we worked very closely with Google and Android on every level to ensure tight integration and optimization between Flash Player 10.2, the new OS and the browser.”
The product, according to Adobe, will display the webpage in the tablet’s browser exactly in the same way that the programmers and designers intended for it to look on the desktop.
The Flash 10.2 release for the Android 3.0 operating system is a fully functional beta release with the final GA version to be out within a couple of weeks. Flash 10.2 will additionally have Stave Video support and full graphic acceleration for smoother, crisper graphics and an overall enhanced mobile casino gambling experience.
Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) Flash 10.2 is a GA (final) release. Together, these technologies unite to provide clean smooth and streamlined playback of HD videos as well as the ability to embed the Flash driven dynamic content directly into the tablet. You may download Flash 10.2 free at the Android App Market.
