So sick of Good Mobile Flash Coming Soon

As reported by Engadget recently, the latest version of mobile flash for Android is now available. They note that while 480p video ran fine without dropping frames 720p was far from watchable. Adobe say that a version with full hardware acceleration with be available in a few more weeks or so. The problem is that Adobe are damaging their own reputation by continually releasing flash for mobile devices that has some aspect that is sub-standard. Yes, it’s getting better, but with their approach of incremental releases it feels like it’s taking forever. When Apple released the iPhone it played H.264 at 480p out of the box with considerably lower spec hardware than Android phones have today.
