Motorola Xoom owners need only wait one more week to download Adobe Flash Player 10.2, which will be available via the Android Market as a beta, Adobe promised. Flash Player 10.2 will drop with general availability for Android 2.2 (Froyo) smartphones, such as the Motorola Atrix 4G and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices, such as the Samsung Nexus S, that meet the Flash hardware system requirements.

After the beta launch, Flash on the Xoom will receive subsequent updates, leading to a general availability release of Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.0. Flores also promised deeper integration of Flash Player with the Android 3.0 browser to better render Web video content. This translates to better Web page scrolling, as well as support for instances where HTML and other Web content are composited over Flash Player rendered content. 

Verizon Wireless announced Friday that it has started rolling out an update for the Motorola Xoom, which will bring Adobe Flash Player 10.2 to the tablet starting March 18. The Xoom launched in late February, making headlines for its initial lack of Flash support. The company said it is a stable release for Android 2.2 Froyo and Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices and a beta release for Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets.

Subsequent updates will bring Flash Player 10.2 for Honeycomb out of beta. With Flash Player 10.2, Adobe promised hardware accelerated video presentation for H.264.  Adobe Systems, working furiously to disprove Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs' belief that the Flash Player is a bad match for mobile devices, will deliver its second version of the software for Android devices on March 18. 

The software will be available in final form through the Android Market for Android 2.2 (Froyo) and 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices and in beta form for Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablets after Google's 3.0.1 system update, Adobe said in a blog post. People can check Adobe's list of Flash-capable Android devices to see if theirs made the cut.
