Android 2.2 codename Foyo, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, arrived on the market not too long ago with one highly appealing feature for its users, namely support for Adobe’s Flash Player 10.1.
However, the solution is not available at the moment on all devices that run under Froyo, though it seems that users can easily download and install it on their phones.
The official Flash Player 10.1 (v10.1.92.8), was leaked on the Internet, and some made it available for all mobile phones running under the Android 2.2 OS version.
According to the news, the software solution should work regardless the device on which one tries to install it, and it doesn’t even require for the phone to be rooted for the installation to be possible, at least this is what a recent post on droid-life (via BGR) states.
Basically, all that users would have to do is to download the Flash Player 10.1 .apk file on their devices, after which they would need to install it to benefit from what it can offer.
All those Android 2.2-based users who do not see the Flash Player 10.1 as available for them in the Android Market can try out the solution, to enjoy some Flash goodness.
However, most of the Android 2.2 Froyo running mobile phones already have Flash enabled, or are about to get it, it seems.
DROID by Motorola was one of the handsets updated to Froyo without Flash coming to it, but it seems that Verizon is getting ready to deliver the solution to it as soon as today, August 24.
Other devices in the US, including DROID 2 by Motorola, Nexus One or HTC EVO 4G, already enjoy Flash Player 10.1.
The same should apply to HTC Desire in Europe, which received the Android 2.2 update from HTC a few weeks ago, and which is currently being upgraded over at Vodafone.
