Google Android 2.2 FroYo: A Closer Look At Flash Player 10.1

Officially announced this morning at Google I/O in San Fransisco, the Google Android 2.2 update which is also delicately known as FroYo will be made available to Motorola Droid and Nexus One owners in June. One on the most talked about features to come with the update though, is the inclusion of Flash support.

In a hands-on-look at the Flash support (it’s about time!), PC World have said that overall, the experience is good although they did encounter a couple of issues. One the whole though things were good, such as playing Facebook’s Farmville, a range of games on Kongregate and trailers that are available on the Warner Brothers website.

One interesting feature that has been included to get the best out of your flash experiences, are the recommended websites that are situated on the homescreen. These include BBC, Sony Pictures, Armour Games and many more. You can find these on TechCrunch who got hold of the lists for the Droid and the Nexus One, where the latter is far bigger than the Droid.

Another disappointment is the non-inclusion of Hulu. While trying to watch an episode of “30 Rock” on the Nexus One, they were sad to find out that Hulu does not have distribution rights for content on mobile devices. Lets hope Hulu see this as an opportunity to expand their horizons.

Are you looking forward to the Flash inclusion in the Android 2.2 update? What websites do you hope are supported?
