Adobe Blog Adobe has outlined plenty of what we will see in the future. With Flash Player 11, AIR 3, 3D and console quality gaming and more all across multiple platforms and especially mobile, all thanks to Flash 11 and AIR 3. According to Adobe these updates will bring the “next generation of immersive apps across platforms including Android, iOS (via AIR), BlackBerry Tablet OS, Mac OS, Windows, connected TVs and other platforms.”
last week Flash got updated to 10.3 and brought some welcomed changes and updates for Android 3.1 and Honeycomb tablets. This update today doesn't say much, but updates must be good right.
Android Market now. It was recently updated to 10.2 and there was comments about the next Honeycomb update in the release notes that were quickly removed. This time there seems to not be much for release notes or a changelog except for 10.2 stuff.
pushed out a firmware update for the GTab, which adds Adobe Flash support among other things. The new software - available as an OTA update - also adds to the GTab's productivity abilities, as it throws USB keyboard and mouse support onto the Android slate. There's also support for an external docking station, the addition of new international cities in the Weather app, and a few new languages supported. The OTA update should be automatically offered in the notification area. Meanwhile, if you're more into raw speed then it's worth checking out the 1.4GHz/1.6GHz overclock we wrote about yesterday.

Motorola Mobility tonight has tweeted a small bit of information that some of you early adopters like us here at AC might find important and useful. According to the Motorola twitter page, starting tonight Motorola is rolling out an OTA update that will provide some fixes, and changes for the Motorola Xoom that will prepare it for Adobe Flash 10.2 and upgrade the Xoom to Android 3.0.1
Motorola XOOM may be shaping up to be the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to reach the market, but it won't be bringing all of its features from the start. According to a tiny disclaimer at the bottom of Verizon's listing for the slate, the XOOM won't have Adobe Flash support until Spring 2011. Adobe had already said that it was working on Flash Player 10.2 for Honeycomb, so it seems that Android 3.0 won't launch with Flash Player 10.1 as is available for current Android smartphones. Considering Flash support is an oft-cited advantage of Android over iOS on the iPad, that decision could well come back to haunt Adobe, Google and OEMs. [vms 3b03ae6d3f8540cd6362] [via Engadget]
