VIDEO: Flash Running on Tegra 2 Android Tablet

At the Web 2.0 conference, Adobe is cheering for Android with demonstrations on Android devices, free Android phones for its employees and now, a demonstration of Flash running on an Android tablet powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2.

Zedomax reports seeing a range of devices running Flash at the Adobe booth at Web 2.0 but among them was a tablet running Android 2.1.


"It runs Adobe’s Flash and Air apps flawlessly.  That was the first time I saw Adobe’s Air apps running on a tablet and totally impressed by how it ran.  And now I can understand why Apple wants to ban Flash and other Adobe products completely from their iPhones and iPads, because it’s rather incredible technology.

The prototype that was demo-ed at the Web 2.0 Expo show was showing the current workings of the Wired magazine’s Google Tablet app.   Certainly, it looks like Google Android tablet will make a big impact on worldwide tablet sales."

Confirmation of the Tegra 2's presence inside the tablet shown in the video below comes via Engadget:

"It is indeed Tegra 2. We worked closely with Adobe to show how next-gen Tegra can bring the complete web to tablets at Web 2.0," Nvidia said in an emailed comment."You can expect to start seeing Tegra 2 devices appearing this summer, with plenty on the way in the third and fourth quarters of the year."

    I don't care if it looks just like ipad. as long as it doesn't bear the apple trademark or is in anyway putting money into steve job's several bank accounts- I'll take it.

    This is a prototype as your video clearly shows, so it's not surprising it still has a few kinks. For all you know it could have been the browser. At least somebody didn't leave this prototype in a bar...

    Means nothing until we hear how it affects battery.

    And what kind of video in the Flash file? Probably mp4/h.264 so hardware acceleration can be used.
    If that's true, why do i need it in a Flash container?
