Video: Flash 10.1 on the DROID X

Prepare to be teased!

While many of us have been enjoying Adobe’s Flash 10.1 on our Motorola Droids due to a bundle of Android 2.2 leaks over the last few weeks, this new video should get you all really excited.  Seeing the Droid X in all its 4.3″ glory with full Flash is quite a sight…

We know that the plan is for the DX to launch with Android 2.1 on the 15th and then receive Froyo some time in August, but tell me, how hard is that wait going to be?  Especially with the rest of the Droid 1 owners possibly getting it throughout the week of the 13th.

This truly is the “Summer of Droid.”

    I rooted my Motorola Droid to Froyo 2.2 and successfully achieved superuser permission. I verified using Terminal Applicator that I have administration rights granted by typing SU.

    Just got the Froyo update on my Droid X this morning and the player was not bundled with it. I am downloading the player to my phone as I type this.

    i have adobe flash on my moto droid. flash is the present, HTML 5 is the future. so all the apple fans that say HTML5 is better or we don't need flash or flash ruins battery life, can shove it because it's not true.

    Because adobe has people in a hard spot. People really would rather just use there iphone or whatever and leave flash behind but there is too much already existing flash content. It is the existing content people want.

    I just love the looks of that phone. But I will have to wait for sometime before I can upgrade, no telling what will be on the market then. :)

    its not necessarily something spacific for the world cup, i mean, it is, but i also think hes trying to show you what they can do with such apps. There may be a world cup every four years, but there are NBA playoffs every year…

    My droid 1 running BBV0.4 and everything is smooth including flash player…It really works good.

    Flash is garbage, but it's what people are using. Let's just use this crappy software until HTML5 is used and then we'll all jump on that. We should just have a choice for now…

    Nice video,person who is giving brief,he have a great knowledge and his way is so clear to describe the features….

    you need to find and install flash from the Market.

    I rooted my Motorola Droid today to Froyo 2.2 and successfully achieved superuser permission (ninja icon). I verified using Terminal Applicator that I have administration rites granted by typing SU. However, the adobe Flash player 10.1 that I desperately need doesn't seem to be working. I used the same web site as in this demo (Grid Shock on Kongregate) but Adobe didn't work. Am I missing something? Is there a feature I have to turn on? In web browser i verified under settings that enable java script is clicked on. can someone help me get Adobe flash to work please.

    as glad as i am that we have flash on android, i have to say that's a pretty disappointing demo. it's clear that all the content has been specially re-worked for mobile devices (the game is even called fat slice mobile) and it still doesn't scroll smoothly. i want to know how regular flash that i will encounter on the regular web will work. after all, isn't the supposed benefit of flash that we have the same content on computers and phones?

    What have I sunk to? I'm trying to watch a video on my D1 of another phone playing a video just so I can see this video playing on a larger screen. What?

  • pir800

    wow that looks laggy and almost unusable.

  • WhereIsTony

    Anyone think its weird that you can't preorder the X?

      What Does Big Red Do That Isn't Weird?? Lol

    Would Verizon Really Be That Mad That We All Have Froyo 2.2 On Our Droid 1's, Because To Me Its Gotta Be Out There Somewhere To Be “Leaked Unofficially”. Honestly My Droid 1 Running BBV0.4 Everything Is Smooth Including Flash Player So With That Said I Guess Verizon Can Take Their Sweet Time Releasing The Official Update. =)

  • Kmurrill2

    Whats up with them making me think they had some new info about the droid x. I saw this video 2 weeks ago. Stop torturing me and give me my info fix…..NOW!

    DL Community….please try this for yourselves and tell me if what I am seeing is worth beleiving.

    I have watched video content on yahoo every day since I got my Droid and never once had a problem. Last night when I tried to watch a clip of the latest news headlines, I received an error stating the video cannot be played. After experimenting with the UA String settings, I changed to “desktop” in the browser and tried again but this time it downloaded the video to my SD card in i*hone.qt format! What the hell is that all about? QuickTime….are they serious?

    I sent them an email asking politely not to favor the i*phone, but don't expect a response. Please tell me if this is true I will not be the only one to boycott them. Thanks for letting me rant. Have a DroidLife day and try to keep cool. Its a hot one here on the east coast 😉

  • ckeegan

    I wonder if his business card says “Evangelist”?

  • mcdoogles

    I will let u all know for sure if it has flash this afternoon… My friend works for VZW and has the test phone already I've played with it and everything a couple days ago. He was telling me while I was using it that he played a video in the browser but I forgot to check it out. I will go look at it today on my launch and let you guys know whats up

    They're adding all these features from 2.2 to their mangled copy of 2.1 Why not just release it with Froyo. Motorola, stop over-complicating things, you're just pissing off the customers!(yes I know they wont read this.) I don't understand why they want to encrypt the bootloader either. If they aren't worried about the minority that would flash their phones, when not just leave it unencrypted and let that tiny % of their customer base do what they want with devices the BUY?

    Don't know if this has been asked yet, but will the Droid X come with Flash lite like the Droid Incredible does?

    • kellex

      Don't think so. Have to just wait until August for full Flash.

  • Erasmussen14

    looked to be running pretty choppy on the world cup website…

    • picaso86

      I second this!

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/LEKFMUDDDIBPV5NJKW6YTGNRWA Carlo

        Might as well 3rd this one. Don't get me wrong, it works in BB 0.4 but leaves little to be desired. It seems like the browser does not know how to incorporate the code properly…

  • Finntrollx
