Flash Player Performance on Droid 2 Found to Be Hit-or-Miss at Best

LAPTOP has been evaluating the performance of Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 on a number of different mobile devices, specifically focusing on how the multimedia player handles various content sources on the new Droid 2. With Apple CEO Steve Jobs' open letter published in late April claiming that Adobe had yet to deliver a Flash Player running well on a mobile platform, there has been considerable interest now that Adobe's much-hyped Flash Player 10.1 is finally making its way to platforms such as Google's Android. Based on LAPTOP's experience on the Droid 2, however, much still seems to be lacking.
I'm the last person on earth who wanted to believe Steve Jobs when he told Walt Mossberg at D8 that "Flash has had its day." I took it as nothing more than showmanship when Jobs shared his thoughts on Flash and wrote that "Flash is closed and proprietary, has major technical drawbacks, and doesn't support touch based devices." After spending time playing with Flash Player 10.1 on the new Droid 2, the first Android 2.2 phone to come with the player pre-installed, I'm sad to admit that Steve Jobs was right. Adobe's offering seems like it's too little, too late.

that's why their sticking to blackberry.
we @ the federal government will continue to use only blackberry.
blackberry is still the best business smartphone iphone 4/5/6/7/8/9 cannot stop blackberry.
O, 19 Aug 2010There are so many better fones out there than the shitty iPhone like for example the Samsung G... moreSome people have money to spend scumbag ;) ... We are not all poor and want to have a camera/laptop/dishwasher/radio/mp3/tv... on one device.
Just because something is out of reach for you there's no need to insult people that could afford to buy things they want.... who's the retard? the guy that makes the money to buy what he wants or the guy that can't afford it so decides to insult others???
[deleted post]I thought deeply, and asked for Gods blessing on us all. I want a Nokia 2960 now... NOT!
i have a blackberry, you can have million apps etc in your ipone or android handset but they still cant beat the encrypted push email and instant message which blackberry have mastered..!!
apple iphone4 is the best ever......rest everything is toooooo far aways from apple...i love iphone4
Mostly iphone4 haters are not the users but the one who cant afford to buy that device
They dont own camera, PC, radio and etc so they want all of the features in some small phone.
The users just looking for some user friendly device, and the one with money will definetly buy iphone no stupid beggar can stop this
it is very expensive mobile phone and thier spec is too low standard no blue tooth file sending or no speakerphone etc.........i think APPLE is going to finish them to launch this type of mobile phones in market .....instead of APPLE i prefer to NOKIA ..........N8 i think soo.............
no flash player, slow video buffering in youtube unlike the Samsung Wave it buffers faster. Too expensive for just a mobile phone I'd rather buy Blackberry or Samsung Galaxy S & Wave instead.
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2010iPhone does suck if it's in it's factory condition. When jailbroken, nothing can touch the iPh... morethat's what i am talking about.
Apple need to give the iphone dave team a $100,000,000
Osama, 19 Aug 2010Dear All, I'm in Egypt and I want to buy IPHONE 4 from Apple online store from USA, would you... morebuy the iphone from the uk or canada it's sold unlocked and can be used on any gsm network around the world.
i would say i dont like the iphone its abit expensive. but if they put a good camera on it and sorted the signal. there is no other phone that would evan come close on the market but i think at the present time the n8 when it gets here will be write up there if not the best
thapelo, 19 Aug 2010can you send pictures & music via bluetooth on apple iphone 4?You can get an app to send pictures via Bluetooth.
I speak on behalf of every human being on this Earth.
To make the iPhone better.
1)add bluetooth file transfer
2)add JAVA: Midi 2.0
3)fix the poor reception signal problem
4)work on the camera/flash for God's sake! (copy S.E.)
5)make the device a tinch smaller.. so everyone can fit one...
Now I see the perfect phone... all your "smart" deprivations are actually costing you more than earning you.. Cheers x
