Adobe's last mobile Flash version, 11.1, arrives quickly

updated 10:45 am EST, Fri November 11, 2011

Adobe mobile Flash 11.1 already available

Adobe's plans to drop mobile Flash came quicker than expected as it rolled out the last update, Flash Player 11.1 (Android Market) late last night. The new version is a maintenance update and switches on support for 1080p Flash video on Tegra 3 devices like the ASUS Transformer Prime. Those with the Galaxy S II also see a bug fixed where video would refuse to play.

The company hinted that there might still be minor bugs left with audio priority and text input. Adobe had promised that it would provide fixes for known, outstanding problems, but wouldn't deliver significant feature upgrades or update for compatibility for a new OS.

As such, the release is the last significant version of Flash ever to reach a mobile device short of custom implementations, like on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Adobe has nearly completely inverted its stance from a year ago, when it tried to portray Flash as a fundamental part of the Internet, to preferring HTML5 and arguing that it's the better choice for mobile.
