Qualcomm and Adobe Optimize Flash for SnapDragon
Qualcomm and Adobe today announced that the companies have created an optimized version of Flash to run on Qualcomm's SnapDragon processors. The optimization will help deliver improved Flash performance on both high-end smartphones and more mid-range handsets. The MSM8x55, which targets high-end Android smartphones and tablets, will now be able to playback Flash content in HD. The 800MHz MSM7x27, which targets mid-range handsets, will now be able to run Flash video in the browser, as well as run casual games, applications, videos, and other Flash-based content. Qualcomm and its partners are demonstrating the new features this week, but they haven't said when end-users can expect to see the improvements.
