Adobe Flash had been around a lot of talks lately, with most of it coming of issues regarding whether it is suitable for use on smart phones. This issue is brought up by no other than Apple with its widely known stand against implementing the software on its products. But apart from that episode, Adobe forges on by making the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 available for mobile phones.

Adobe has just recently released the Flash Player 10.1 for Mobile. It is now available for download for smart phones using the latest version of the Android Mobile OS which is also known as FroYo. The initial version was released on beta to the public a month or so ago for testing. The current launch is for the finished product version. Soon, it will also be available for other of Adobe’s device partners like the Palm WebOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone 7, MeeGo, LiMo and Symbian phones.

The new Flash Player for mobile phones will make Web browsing more convenient and possible now for Android phones. The same experience will like also be enjoyed by almost all other types and models of smart phones, that is, except the iPhone. The lack of Flash support may really limit browsing sites with Flash content on the iPhone and other Apple products. But they still seem to hold pretty much well on their own. The availability of the Flash Player on non-Apple smart phones may be considered as an advantage for smart phone makers competing with the iPhone. But then , it will all depend on how the new mobile Flash Player will perform and how consumers would find using it.
