Honeycomb 3.1 Confirmed By… Adobe

Posted by kenmay on April - 28 - 2011

While I think we all knew, deep down inside, that at some point there would be an Android 3.1, it hasn’t actually been mentioned by anyone except as a potential future upgrade. But Adobe let the cat out of the bag today with an update to Flash: the changelog to 10.2 includes a few features with “(requires Android 3.1)” on the end – or at least, it did until they fixed it. Luckily, Droid-Life got a screenshot.

Not much else was mentioned; chances are, like the other X.1 releases, it’ll be mostly bug fixes, performance increases, and support for newer hardware. This accelerated Flash content will certainly be welcome; the 16:9 form factors are great for watching video, but decoding 720p Flash video with your CPU only is a tricky affair that, if it even works, tends to suck the battery dry. Hopefully this release will fix that.
