Flash Player 10.1

Adobe has announced a new update for it Flash Player which will go into version 10.1 and will be available for PCs, notebooks, netbooks, smartphones, mobile phones and a bunch of other devices. Basically, Flash Player 10.1 will be available for all devices running Windows Mobile, Palm webOS and desktop oriented Windows, Macintosh and Linux, as well as Google Android and Symbian OS that are expected to become available in early 2010.

The new Flash Player 10.1 will bring GPU-accelerated video and graphics, which is a result of joint development between Adobe and Nvidia, and will also bring support for multi-touch gestures, new mobile input models, accelerometers for screen orientation and motion.

According to the press release from Adobe, the 19 out of the top 20 smartphone makers are working with Adobe to implement the new Flash Player, but the most interesting fact is that it will allow GPU acceleration for the Nvidia's ION and Tegra platforms. We already had a chance to saw a brief video of HP's ION based netbook that was playing a 720p video content, and considering the fact that Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang has hinted a big Tegra design win for the Q1, we are quite sure that it will have something to do with this Adobe Flash Player 10.1 announcement.

Public betas for Linux, Mac and Windows as well as webOS and Windows Mobile should be available before the end of the year while Android and Symbian should get theirs early 2010. You can check out the new Flash Player running on Palm Pre and Toshiba's TG01 here, and some ION based fun should be seen pretty soon.
