Droid does support Adobe Flash

Droid does: Flash

One important feature that Verizon forgot to include in their Droid Does commercial is that the Droid phone does support Flash while the iPhone doesn't! Earlier this year, Adobe announced that they will be releasing a mobile version of their Flash Player for Android, Windows Mobile, and the Palm webOS. The iPhone OS was not included in this list.

The Droid will be running Android 2.0 operating system. Flashplayer is expected to be released for the Android OS and other mobile operating systems some time in early 2010. With multi-tasking, Flash, and the most popular carrier, the Droid does stand a pretty good chance at competing with the iPhone. Will it be an iPhone killer? We'll find out soon enough! The launch date is expected to be some time in early November.

Droid looks to be much better than the iPhone. If only it had iTunes support lol. Droid looks to be my next phone on verizon

I agree, I have a 3Gs and I think android will be my next phone. As apple locks things down more and more and keeps out good stuff like Mozilla Fenic and Adobe Flash. I just don't see apple being able to stay on the cutting edge. Thank goodness for some solid competition!

I'm not surprised but atleast one phone can actually be the iphone killer. As much as I love my 3GS, hands down, Droid owns. I wouldn't mind getting the Droid. I just want to see what Apple will come out next.

Lol, tho u gotta understand, apple is actually not even supporting flash on macs, which just like FireWire(apple stop supporting it) it will become non-existant...so why upgrade...or in other words downgrade(to verizon) for the next best device...I won't be going to verizon anytime soon, they lack in so much for service...oh well AT&T ftw

Yep droid does

Crack it
October 20, 2009 at 8:33 AM

Ok this is going to be either an iPhone KILLER or a wake up call to get off their @SSES and start adding those missing FEATURES

October 20, 2009 at 1:59 PM

You have to admit apple has been pretty slow to implement features requested by its users. Stereo bluetooth took like 2 iphone updates before it was implemented. Copy and paste we didnt get till the recent update. In the cell phone industry the changes are moving at lightspeed and while apple is a great company i dont think they have been up to par with feature demands. The droid looks very good and i will opt for it as well over the iphone 3g but you gotta love which toys well get in the future.

The Droid may ended up being good competition for the iPhone but Im skeptical. I bought the G1 when it came out for T-Mobile and I was unimpressed by the technology. Maybe it was just a crappy setup by Google, but I sold the phone and cancelled the contract with T-Mobile after three months and switched to the iPhone. There are two things that bother about the iPhone. 1st, I can't input custom SMS tones. 2nd, No Flash support. I dot mind the lack of flash support so much but I'd like to input SMS tones of my own. Overall, I will likely keep the iPhone until it dies out on me.

Flash might not be supported through safari, but Iphone devs will still be able to make flash based apps that will run natively on the Iphone. It sucks that it still can't run flash over the internet, but making flash apps that work on the iphone will be fitting for itunes.

From iPhone to Droid
October 28, 2009 at 4:16 AM

I've had an iPhone since they were released. It's nice, but the AT&T coverage is terrible with lots of dropped calls and no reception in some cases (in my area). That combined with Apple's continued decision to not support Flash on the iPhone will have me switching to the Droid phone with Verizon if it supports Flash (as mentioned above in your article) and looks like a good phone. In my opinion the iPhone has become exactly what it was against when it was first released.

Thanks Free Marketplace for continuing to support competition and innovations from companies who want to add features and options over companies who try to lock them out.

Many more of the sites i browse are using flash based viewers ( about 80% of the sites I use now only support flash).

I have also had issues with AT&T with dropped calls and calls not coming in at all, then later some calls showing up as missed calls.

This makes my iphone as good as a brick. Looks like i'm going to cancel my iphone and switch to Droid.

What will Apple do next?
They're going to sell your 3gs for 100 dollars. They're going to sell the same phone for cheaper, not improve much or do anything special. Just do what they always do, alienate their die hard followers who purchased the phone right at launch and then turn around giving them nothing new and the middle finger.
What's the point of having a neat phone if it doesn't really do its most base function? Being a phone. On the At&t network, it has a very hard time doing that.
Don't get me wrong, the IPhone really blew the smart phone scene up. It made a smart phone usable to the general populace. Simplicity brought it to the masses, where as before, smart phones were just nifty gadgets that few owned, and even fewer could use. But, it has some handicaps that are catching up with it. Network is crap, apple loves the smell of it's on excrement, and the rest of the competition isn't sitting around with their thumbs inserted all the wile grinning toothily. I like the Droid, I like the I-phone, I hate apple and AT&T. I like Google, Verizon, and Motorola.

The droid does not support flash. But a jailbroken iphone does! If it's true that Verizon will get the iphone next year it will be well worth the wait. Unless it is like they say it will be and have a much smaller screen....hmm. What to do?

As an iPhone 3Gs owner, I am very glad that the Droid is such a great phone. We need competition, and Apple better pay attention. I can see that HTC, Motorola, Nokia will easily overtake iPhone very soon. No flash support on the iPhone after 3 years? This is bad. Most websites depend on Flash, and Apple better get it together. I like the idea that most phones coming out allow you to customize, while Apple prohibits it. While I generally like my iPhone, I'm getting tired of Apple, and may opt out of a 4th generation iPhone unless there are some major improvements. Also, my 3GS is not as reliable as my older 2G iphone.

I just bought the DROID and it just destroys the I- phone. Allow me to ellaborate why. First off, it has a thin slide out keyboard. Secondly, This device has an expandable micro sd card. Multitasking annyone? No more having to shut down the music to go anywhere else with the phone. The last thing , although there are many more, is that this phone is running android software which allows so much more since it is open source code.

Droid runs itunes fine. Download DoubleTwist (a free app) to your PC and it will sync itunes to the Droid.

the droid will not kill the iphone per say, the iphone is a monstrous institution already established and android is just emerging. However, you gotta say that compared to the iphones launch at first the droid definitely kills it, even the 3gs... the hardware is either equal or better in some areas. Phone DOES clock at 600mhs, with openGL support graphics, dedicated graphics processor, way better resolution and bigger screen. the keyboard has gotten bad reviews but you cant complain for the phone being closely as thin as the iphone (thinnest slide out qwerty phone on the market). It DOES support multitouch but apple did not give software rights to use that in the US, however, elsewhere it will and there are third party apps that will take advantage of this. Plus its open source! dvd quality video capture and 5mp cam... real multitask, (no need for unreliable jailbait). Overall hardware is awesome and software has POTENTIAL yet unexploited to kill the mac os on the iphone. bad thing is everyones mind is set on one thing and are not open to change...

Just went to the adobe website on my droid and it verified that they are working on a flash player for it and said to be available 2010

A HUGE thing you all are forgetting is that Droid DOES NOT allow you to browse on the internet or do web based activities and talk on the phone at the same time.

GUESS WHAT ?? that means if you are looking at a web page, your calls will go to voice mail.

Um... i think ANYONE with half a brain can see how that absolutely sucks. For that reason alone, I would not consider the Droid. Otherwise, I think it's a great device-- though, I played with one and the scrolling was nowhere near as smooths as my iPhone 3gs--- and that was surprising since it had no apps installed on it.. brand new off the shelf.. anyway.. another thing I *don't* like about the droid is the pull out keyboard.. it's just not a good keyboard, the keys are too flat, it's almost like typing on a flat surface, so why not just save the space, have a thinner, lighter phone, and use a virtual keyboard??

where Droid definitely has an edge is in the openness of the Android platform---- however---- a lot of people think that Apple has an edge because they can control their platform better--- I've heard Android developers claim it's hard to write software that will work on all the Android phones because they all have different hardware.. think about it.. that may make it much harder for smaller app developers to write apps that will work across all Android phones and across all versions of Android.

Personally, I wish iPhone ran flash, but then again, I wouldn't use it often because of how it KILLS device battery... you'll see.. no matter how much they optimize flash for mobile, it is either going to DRAIN your battery VERY VERY fast or it's not going to run complex flash sites. hopefully for users, they dumb it down so it just shows flash videos and don't go to crazy with trying to make it support complex sites.. but knowing Adobe, it will be bloated, and drain your batteries to the point that you will wonder why you wanted Flash so badly on your phone after all.

Lol, I find the post about not being able to receive calls while surfing the web entertaining considering I was reading this page on my Droid Eris when I received a call from my boyfriend, and then was able to look something up for him on Google while having him on speaker... The multitasking ability of the Droid kicks arse. :3

One of my favorite things about the droid is a free app called ringdroid. It lets you play any song in your phone library and choose which part of that song to save as an alert tone or ringtone. And with DoubleTwist, all of your itunes are synced to the droid, so you can make a tone out of any tune you own.

Bottom line is the iphone will always be a 2nd best device until it is on Verizon's network. AT&T just doesn't keep up on the network to let the iphone be used everywhere. What good is any type of phone if you don't have the coverage to support it. AT&T sued Verizon for those "There's a map for that" ads. Where it shows Verizon has 5X the coverage as AT&T. The judge ruled that Verizon may continue to air the ads because the information is accurate. So we'll continue to see those commercials unless AT&T is ready to invest billions of dollars to match what Verizon has already done.
Right now I'm on my 6th generation BlackBerry and the Droid phone is the only one to take me away from the BlackBerry. The camera, the speeds, the innovation, the network, the open platform make this the most amazing device till 4G emerges (on a real network) and they start video conferencing straight from your cell phone.
Thank goodness for good competition that help speed up these cool technologies, especially iphone. And when the iphone comes to Verizon maybe I'll try that too.

I have had my droid for about 2 weeks. WOW! My days of iPhone envy are completely over. Steve Jobs/Apple is to technologt what Hitler was to humanity. I have apps on my droid like pdanet (free tether to pc) that apple would never allow out of greed. This phone rocks!

November 27, 2009 at 4:12 AM

I loved my iPhone. I had the 1-G from the get go when they came out. With AT&T it all depends on where you live. I live in a state line area, not near any interstates. I had a flat line (no bars) coverage indicator at home in my living room, no service in the basement. I had one tenth of the first bar of coverage at work. The work building was an average cinder block construction with windows. No coverage = why do I have this phone with AT&T? I had NO interest in jail breaking it. I never bought the 3-G because of poor AT&T coverage for me (and their own map shows no 3-G coverage where I live). AT&T customer support for me was always very good but I explained to them, the phone is no good without coverage. I got the Droid, and have full coverage at home even in the basement and at work! I’m waiting patiently for Flash, which right now seems will never happen on the iPhone.. My iPhone is now an iPod touch. Since I rarely had service on that phone it seems that nothing has changed.....as I said it’s now a great iTouch. When the battery goes I’ll decide if I want to pursue changing it. Not a problem on the Droid!

The Droid is the most amazing piece of equipment to join my team since I bought a Mac Book Pro. This little phone is capable of amazing things, and has delivered more than I was hoping for in a smart phone. My previous phones were Blackberrys, but compared to the Droid they were toys.

I have an FTP client on my Droid that works at speeds comparable to my Mac with small file loads. The Blackberry never would hook up to the Mac without a PC emulator, Droid hooks up easily giving you access to all of your files.

There are plenty of apps to make the phone do almost whatever you would like. Installing and uninstalling is as effortless as it is on a Mac, and maybe better.

Droid really does, and with Flash it will be complete.

Any Verizon customer in search of a smart phone would be spending their money wisely on this phone. Buying this phone online brought me an extra $100.00 discount on top of the $100.00 two year upgrade discount. $99.00 for a powerhouse like this is amazing.

the droid is a great device with many short comings.
I am sick and tired of the "Flash" discussion, let me put this to rest THE DROID DOES NOT HAVE A FLASH PLAYER ! neither does the iphone. Adobe says in first half of 2010 it will, maybe they both will, maybe none of them will.
The music player in Droid...sucks!
one of the best apps for the droid to download for free is "Advanced Task Killer" to shut down the apps you have running since you tried to use them. A similar app should be built in the system to monitor whats running and slowing my phone down.
as far as media player device, videos must be mp4 that's it. and not all formats work so find the best and stick with it.
And yes, the screen is gorgeous 854 x 480 but that is not a normal format conversion setting so...again good luck finding what works.
my wife returned her droid because as a phone ...it is a second or third function to the web browser.
the maps and gps are great, i just wish it had speed camera locations and i would leave my tomtom at home.
so be aware flash player by june 2010 may never happen and a better phone will probably be out by then too.

And u say the music player sucks well let's see what's a music player supposed to do? Uhhhh PLAY MUSIC dumb ass and that's what it does and it plays fine idk what else u expect a music player to do besides PLAY MUSIC!

December 16, 2009 at 3:12 AM

Wow... seriously?

You should think about looking into a few things like, spelling, grammar, and common courtesy. ronf57 mentioned that his wife had the Droid, but returned it so he clearly has experience with the phone. In no way does he appear jealous. He also never mentioned anything about having an iPhone.

I personally own the Droid and love it, but the shortcomings he mentioned are real. The music player is seriously lacking. Sure it plays music, but the interface is less than satisfactory. Also, the camera is terrible.

Common courtesy should also dictate to you that "swearing" at someone isn't a way to carry on an adult conversation. Grow up or get off the internet and leave it to the adults.

Well I bet Pat is thinking,,, Uhhhhhh Yes Seriously, I didn't kno you could be so astonished by a post that you'd actually stoop to Pats level (tho he may be a midget idk I'm just saying) and go and talk a bunch of jibrish and yes jibrish it was. Your arguing about a music player which I love Droid music player by the way but yet just a music player. It does what it's supposed to do like Pat#1 stated, and I seriously don't know what else you want from it. Pat#2 what else do u really want? Lil Wayne ain't gona hop out of your Droid, go behind you and hook you up with a reach around, it's just not going to happen, I'm sorry but IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN SO QUIT DREAMING! Oh and "get off the internet, get a life, and leave it to the Adults who don't sit at a PC all day and try to sound like macho man reply to all posts and act hard through typed words.

December 18, 2009 at 7:42 PM

That not pat or another pat guy was right! Pat 2 seems like he doesn't know a damn thing about anything let alone a smartphone. STUPIDDDDD! Why return Droid? DING DING you got it STUPIDIDY and I don't care about spelling Pat 2 so no need to tell me about it. The only shortcommings is your lack knowledge of the device you supposedly use everyday. I'm not going to discuss the music player cause the guy above me said it better than anyone ever could put it. You straight up defended ron to only end up making youself look dumb. Haha and pat 2 said leave it to the adult. Well if were leaving it to the adults then why do even speak? Your knowledge is of a 12YR old with a beeper or two way.

The music player is fine. Is it better than iphones? Idk, but probably not. It does its job. Oh, and the droid does let you know what's running and you can turn them off by just going into settings. He may not have known that however since his wife didn't keep her phone long. The camera needs some work, but I'm sure that will through ota's. The droid however DOES NOT SUCK. It is a beast, but it just comes down to preferences.

I got the Droid on December 20 and so far I can't put the phone down, it's been great I found stores in my town I didn't even know was there. The coverage is awesome, I can basically do everything on the Droid that I can do on my laptop. I will definitely recommend this phone with friends and family, the one thing is I wish flash player was out now but I have a couple more weeks till it arrives.

I just bought my droid on december 2nd. I absolutely love this phone. I have a few friends that own the iphone and they are quite impressed with the power of the droid. The droid is still a pretty new phone and there are still a few bugs to be worked out. After reading some of the comments here I find that it really just comes down to personal preferences. I like my motorola droid better than the iphone due to what I believe to be superior design. I'm a sucker for the simple things. The droid offers much higher volume when watching videos. The iphone could be hard to hear sometimes. Well that's my take on the droid.

December 30, 2009 at 2:11 PM

I've been using my dads droid a lot recently (I am only 14) and I love it. Both my parents have iPod touches, and I think they are both great, but I think the Droid is a little better. My dad's friend has an iPhone, so don't go telling me that the iPhone is way better. I like the droid's sound quality, physical keyboard, voice search, and gps navigation. I love the Droid. I hope to get my own (when I can afford one)

Nate
January 4, 2010 at 12:36 PM

Well I have the Eris so I can't really defend the droid itself but I will say this. The Android OS is phenomenal! It's such a user friendly experience, and I personally believe (in my opinion) that this will be the iPhone killer. Not the phones themselves (unless Google can create a phenomenal multimedia device that's also a really good phone) but the Android firmware. It's such an open source supportive OS that 1000s of apps are appearing within months, that and its so easy to use. Not to mention that its creator is the worlds largest search engine. Talk about big things coming in small packages eh? Not to say the iPhone is terrible its amazing when used as a multimedia device, but as far as being a true phone well theres always room for improvement (if not alot). And with Verizon Wireless' coverage (not to mention that there upgrade to 4G LTE network will make mobile browsing extraordinary) I must say that its the perfect combination. And can't wait to see android 2.0 on the eris!

January 12, 2010 at 2:09 PM

I just got the droid its great and has much more advantages than the iphone but that's my opinion. As a matter of fact I'm typing on it right now! Reccomended by me!

January 16, 2010 at 3:58 PM

Flash for the Droid rocks. Both the i-phone and the Droid are amazing pieces of equipment and neither one "sucks". If you are a safari guy, iTunes, or any kind of "i" guy than the i-phone is for you. If you are a Google guy than the seamless integration between your Google apps is impressive. Personally, I am a Mac computer guy who uses everything Google that syncs "fantastically" with my Droid. The fact that Flash will/is (depending on when you read this) is coming to the Droid and not the i-phone is suspect... but to the winners go the spoils!

Karen
January 18, 2010 at 2:49 AM

I love my Droid, it is addicting! Yes,a task manager should have been built in or at a minimum Verizon should have told consumers to download it. I had to learn about advanced task manager from my bar tender on New Years Eve.
Without it, the battery depletes quickly. Anymore suggestions on battery usage is appreciated as when I am on the web, it goes down quickly.

One thing that AT&T could do is start a "Droid doesn't" ad campaign. Here are two huge shortcomings on Droid:

It doesn't have bluetooth hands-free dialing. Yes, there is a "voice dial" app that it comes with, but it still makes you have to touch the phone to confirm that your voice input was correctly registered. this is a killer if you have the phone in your pocket, and you're driving.

It doesn't have full VOIP Skype, it only has "Skype Lite" which burns your cell minutes instead of going over the 3G or WiFi networks.

And as somebody mentioned

Paul
January 19, 2010 at 10:04 AM

I accidentally hit the "add reply" button before I finished my last note. I was going to add that the iphone DOES have full VOIP Skype. Although, as far as I could tell, getting Apple/AT&T to bring it out was as painful as pulling water out of a stone. But the bottom line is, iphone has it, and Android doesn't.

Brandon
January 20, 2010 at 2:27 PM

Anyone know if the issue with not being able to send audio in text messages on the Droids is being addressed?

Paul
January 21, 2010 at 9:28 AM

I am a current Droid owner, and can say first-hand there are some serious shortcomings. I wrote this in an earlier post, but it's buried in a reply to somebody else. Here are the shortcomings, listed in descending order of seriousness:

1. No hands-free bluetooth dialing. You have to use the droid touchscreen to activate the voice dialer. You then have to touch it again to confirm that the dialer properly interpreted your voice command. This is illegal in many states which now prohibit the operation of a cell phone while driving, unless it is completely hands-free.

2. No flashplayer. Sorry but it doesn't count if you plaster the media with ads saying "Droid WILL HAVE flash" when it is not slated to be available till summer of 2010, 9 months after the droid was released. Can't count your chickens before they hatch. So a more accurate statement would be "Droid will probably have flash in 9 months, while the iphone probably won't". As a droid owner, I'd rather have steak than sizzle, and both camps are selling sizzle. The sizzle is just louder from the Droid camp.

3. No full voip Skype client. This is huge. iphone currently, as of this very minute, HAS FULL SKYPE while droid DOESN'T. Droid just offers "Skype Lite" which burns up your precious cell minutes rather than using your data plan or wifi. If Apple were smart, they'd whip up a "Droid can't..." ad campaign, right quick, and this would be the centerpiece!

Paul
January 21, 2010 at 10:33 AM

Don't get me wrong, I think there are SOME good points with the droid. It's just that these shortcomings, especially the bluetooth one, are very serious. I upgraded to the droid because my previous "dumb phone"s battery died. I now wish I had just bought a new battery. The dumb phone had bluetooth hands-free operation that worked like a charm. It was a better phone than the droid, and my Palm T|X was a better PDA than the Droid. I'd go back if I could, but I'm now saddled with a 2 year contract, which I can't get out of.

I own a droid, yes it has shortcomings, but every phone has shortcomings and the droid happens to have far less than other phones do in my opinion. I tried an iPhone for a while, didn't like it so I went back to a blackberry, and then got a Droid just recently. I like the Droid better than the blackberry and much better than I liked the iPhone, and Verizon is a much better carrier than AT&T.

January 25, 2010 at 1:18 PM

For what my opinion is worth, I kind of expected my new Droid to be Flash capable. I'm starting to find Flash is necesseray for normal browsing. You don't realise it until you don't have it. It's not that I expected my Droid to have Flash specifically, but I expected it to be fully capable of browsing the interwebs, which it wasn't. Because it didn't support the Flash.

clarissa
January 27, 2010 at 3:53 PM

Flash and a antivirus program would have been nice to stand up to the various applications on Face Book.
Touch screens are hard to correct your typing errors. The cut copy and paste is unnerving as well. I miss my Blackberry. It is much more convient than Droid. The keyboard being a slider is wider and there is no spell checker, rrrrr. It makes what you send out look like a child typed it. I LOVE it for the web surfing capabilities but, I want a Blackberry Bold. Touch screen is just pretty.

Whoever said Droid was multitouch was on crack. Some HTC's are multi, but the Moto Droid is definately not.
No vaporware update will cure that.
And we're STILL without Flash.

Droid definitely DOES support multitouch. Just download Dolphin browser...multitouch pinch and zoom out...just like the iPhone...

Buddy...if you're using the internet, your calls DO NOT go to voicemail. The call interupts yuor web browsing. Get your facts correct please.

The only thing really grinds my gears about the droid, because it is the best phone produced, is that the screen doesn't rotate horizontally unless you slide the keyboard down. Hope they fix this...anyone found an app that fixes this?

Don't know what droid you have, but mine corrects spelling.

What? I'm reading your comment on my Droid right now with the screen tilted horizontally, without the keyboard out. It detects being tilted... Some apps and games depend on it.

Maybe you misunderstood that it automatically rotates the screen if you slide the keyboard out, (because why would you use the keyboard with the screen sideways?) but it also rotates automatically from tilting it sideways.

Really a anti-virus? Just what we need another Microsoft pushed app. The DROID is a Linux based system ;)

Maybe you clicked the option that says Auto tilt???

Ya, I think we all expected that too...I have been hoping that someone would sneak it out on a website somewhere ;)

I know I'm bumping this old comment...but your right it is way better. And if only the other DROID users knew what their phone can really do once it is ROOTED. I so love this phone now!

You're right, I forgot about the Orientation option in Sound & Display settings, but my point is that the phone is not incapable of it.

I'm using mu dads droid right now. And there's something that I need to know. Why is it that on some pics the pic doesn't show but instead there's some blue square like thing in the center?

blue lego-looking square means you need flash player to view that item. That's the big thing i'm waiting for so i can use netflix / hulu. :D
