Yesterday, we reported that the Motorola XOOM won’t ship with Flash support out-of-the-box! Now, a XDA member rothnic has uploaded an APK file of Flash 10.1 which is compatible with Tegra 2 based phones and tablets.
rothnic received the APK file from Malata Zpad owners, which is also based on the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset. Since the XOOM is not yet officially available to the general masses, no one knows whether the APK works or not. Interested users can download the Flash 10.1 APK optimized for Honeycomb tablets from here.
Earlier, it was believed that the XOOM and other Android 3.0 based tablets won’t get Flash support until spring 2011. However, Adobe has busted all the rumors in a blog post which states that some Honeycomb tablets will actually ship with Flash 10.2 pre-installed. For other tablets like the Motorola XOOM, an OTA update will soon be rolled out by the company within weeks of Android 3.0 devicesbecoming available to the public.
Hopefully, Adobe will keep its word and release Adobe Flash 10.2 for the XOOM and other Tegra 2 based Honeycomb tablets soon.
