Flash on an Android phone is still somewhat of a rare thing to see, with only a few handsets officially capable of running Adobe's Flash Player. Motorola's original DROID is one of the lucky devices that has been given the go-ahead to run Flash, but now Adobe doesn't feel that the DROID is capable of handling Flash. On the System Requirements page for Flash Player, Adobe has stated that any handset running the app must have Android 2.2, which we already knew, and an 800 MHz processor. As we all know, the DROID is toting a 600 MHz processor which is underclocked to 550 MHz. Perhaps the device is due for a speed tweak in the near future?
I'm surprised to see Adobe say that an 800 MHz chip is required to run Flash, especially since the DROID is able to handle the Flash Player app. Considering most high-end phones nowadays are being released with 1 GHz processors, though, I don't suspect that we'll have to worry about these system requirements in the future. Still, you have to wonder why Adobe set the requirements the way they did. Tell us, DROID owners, how is Flash running on your device?
