Not only will the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Tab ship with Android 2.2, the device will also be shipping with Adobe Flash 10.1. Adobe has indicated that on its blog and the company has recently updated its Flash plug-in download from Android Market to bring support to the Galaxy Tab. Additionally, the update also brings Flash 10.1 compatibility to the HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon Wireless, which had recently received its Android 2.2 Froyo update.
Although Google’s saying that Android 2.2 Froyo wasn’t designed for a tablet, a lot of OEMs–including Samsung–are still rushing Android tablets to the market to compete against Apple’s successful iPad in the consumer space. Manufacturers using Google’s Android OS are differentiating their devices from Apple’s tablet by offering Adobe Flash 10.1 compatibility, though the effectiveness of Flash 10.1 on a number of mobile video sites is still in question as Flash for Mobile still doesn’t fully work with videos from such networks as ABC.com and FOX.com.
