Flash Player 10.1 on Google Nexus One

02.22.10 Posted in Actionscript 3, Flash on mobile, Flash Player by

Michael and I wanted to show you the Flash Player 10.1 running on the Google Nexus One, we tried different kind of websites, from typical FWA websites to games to video players. All of these applications from Yamago, Soleil Noir, Deezer, Canal+ or Ecodazoo were built for previous versions of the Flash Player some of them were even compiled for Flash Player 6 actually using AS1, like the two first games and look how all these websites perform. :)

    Holy crap. The performance is beyond expected. Can’t wait to receive mine.

    Thanks for the report guys!

  2. wonderwhy-er says:

    It run Ecodazoo without noticeable lags 0_0 It is impressive.

  3. a_[w] says:

    Looks like you had a problems with click events – i noticed that in some moments you tried to click on a button but nothing happend.

  4. KStud says:

    My God, that’s Papervision on mobile device! Looking VERY good! Wondering what Apple will do now :)

  5. @a_[w] Regarding the click events, we had problems for two reasons: the hit area was too small (for touch applications on mobile phone, the hit area should at least be a circle with a radius of 34 pixels), and I have issues on my Nexus with button near the edges of the screen. It will be fixed in the next firmwares of Android (I’m running a beta of Android 2.1)

    Damn… I’m just curious on how papervision will perform on Nexus One.. and you guys just answer my question ;)

  7. Peter says:

    performance is great. but take a look at battery life…

  8. ickydime says:

    @densss Not quite. The Ecodazoo was created by Roxik using his own custom 3D library (Sharikura). Hopefully papervision’s performance will be the same as Sharikura because this is amazing and unexpected!

    @thibault Have you had any luck checking out,, or Would love to know how those run.

    Also, are these Flash examples scaling or is Nexus One zooming in/out appropriately. I had assumed us Flash Devs would have to make our sites a certain way for them to scale to the Mobile screen… but this makes it seem as though Nexus takes care of that. Is there any consideration Devs need to make as far as resolution and scaling?

    Thanks so much!

    Looks very good and iPhone will be dead very soon once all major mobile platforms support full flash player version.

    Hopefully it also runs well on the other Android phones that aren’t as powerful as the Nexus One…Like my G1 (HTC Dream) that I bought only a year ago.

  12. JD says:

    How are the ubiquitous hover events treated? So much of Flash content requires mouse hover to trigger the display of controls. It kinda doesn’t even matter if Flash will run or not, it matters if the Flash content is actually usable on a mobile device that can only respond to finger taps.

    Does anyone have any info on the Battery Life issue?

    At about 05:31 in the video time code the battery indicator in the top right of the phone screen goes from what looks like 50% to what looks like 33% – 25%. Is that just a coincidence or did Flash Player 10.1 cause so much power loss?

  18. Davi-T says:

    Fabulous! I can now interact on my mobile phone with crap drawn with a toilet brush! Merci les mecs!

    @Sher Ali
    This is great, but you’re smoking something funny if you actually think Flash support on competing platforms will make the iPhone “dead very soon”. The only thing dead very soon will be your battery after hitting a few Flash sites.

  25. John Mitas says:

    Did the battery just drop down a whole quarter mark in the space of 10 mins (start showed half, ended with a quarter).

    Maybe the batter didnt have that much left in it BUT next time you do a demo might want to start with a full fresh battery :)

  26. Julz says:

    It seems you can click on the flash and scroll a page. You never scrolled down a page with flash taking full screen. It’s running fine but I’m still very skeptical.

  27. Renboy says:

    For all those complaining about the battery -
    The battery in the status bar of the nexus have only a few ‘phases’, and in this clip the battery went down only a single phase.
    This would look the same if the battery was 40% and dropped down to 39% in those 10 seconds of clip.

    Anyway – awesome clip indeed… the Flash support looks way better the I have anticipated!

    Hi Peter,

    Renboy is right, but also remember that all those websites we browsed may not be optimized for mobile. As a consequence they are likely to consume more batteries than optimized ones. With simple optimizations like appropriate video encoding and size and other optimizations they should consume very less batteries. I covered in the optimization guide :

  32. Thank you for this video demonstrating the new flash player. The adobe flash team have done a great job, refining the battery consumption. I’m now looking forward more than ever before to using flash 10.1 on mobile devices. Thanks again for the video.

  36. Thibault,

    First, congratulations on your new position at Adobe.

    Second, I would be very curious how the Demo at performs on the Nexus One. It is a spherical video demonstration. Click>drag on a sample to pan around. Any feedback would be highly appreciated.

    Jason Villmer

  37. Please try crusher on I would love to see how it performs. Please please please. :-)

  38. This is brilliant! Great performance. Adobe’s hard work will be fruitful.

  39. Porter says:

    Flash on mobile devices is definitely going to enhance the mobile web, I’m much more prone to get a smart phone once flash is running on them.
