The release of Adobe Flash 10.1 onto Android has been quite a tale. Droid users can feel a bit better today, as Droid-Life revealed yesterday that Verizon is planning on releasing an update (FRG22D) for the device, which should bring with it the ability to install the Flash Player 10.1 from the Android Market. The received a picture of an internal Verizon document, and revealed an updated PDF support document from the Verizon site, showing the new update.
We saw rumors of the FRG22 build almost two weeks ago, and there was skepticism as to whether the update was real, and whether it would succeed the FRG01B update, but we now the answer to that. No word on the changes between the FRG22 and FRG22D update though.
According to this Verizon document, the update will also come with software changes to improve the Droid's security. In addition, the update should be starting today, but I haven't heard anything yet, especially since it is still morning in the States.
We've had plenty of questions in the forums about the Flash 10.1 for the Droid, and Android 2.2 rolled out not too long ago. Let's just hope this doesn't end up being another one of those deals where the launch date falls through, and we are left guessing when the update will really come out.
It does however appear likely that this date is the real deal, as the Verizon document expressly states that users are encouraged "to download this update today." Continue to keep in mind that these updates tend to take several days or weeks to finish.
Sound off in the comments if your Droid has received the FRG22D update, and let us know if Adobe Flash 10.1 works on your handset.
