Today a Motorola XOOM ad indicated Flash Player 10.1 wouldn’t be available on the XOOM at launch. Turns out it isn’t really available for any device running NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip. After the ad surfaced, Adobe updated the Android Market description for Flash Player to include:
It SHOULD NOT be installed on devices/tablets with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 super chip including the LG Optimus 2X, Dell Streak 7 and Motorola ATRIX. The pre-installed version of Flash Player is optimized for Tegra 2. Future updates will include these optimizations. If you are unsure as to whether your device includes the NVIDIA Tegra 2, please consult your device owner’s manual.
So it looks like we will have to wait for Tegra 2 optimization before getting the benefit of Flash content on more powerful dual-core devices. That might not be too far off, either, based on a leaked APK file uncovered earlier today. It is available for installation over at DroidLife, if you want to take the risk on your brand new XOOM come Thursday.
