Hey all,
anybody got any idea why the htc wildfire isnt getting flash 10.1 when the 2.2 update comes out?
I know that alot of people have been saying because its not powerful enough and the flash 10.1 is for armv7 cpus, not the armv6 cpus which the wildfire has (or at least thats what I've read) but if the wildfire can handle skyfire and youtube without any problems etc, then im sure it wouldnt be hard for htc to get flash 10.1 working on the wildfire also?
Im a bit of a noob when it comes to this sort of thing so if theres something im missing out then tell me but otherwise i dont completely understand why theyve done this, especially after all ive been hearing about how 2.2 is supposed to greatly improve the performance of the wildfire. sure, many of the flash games out there may still not work on the wildfire even if it had flash because it lacks the power but having flash 10.1 would still be very handy.

well thats my thoughts anyway. what are yours?

Oh and does anyone have an official release date for 2.2 on unlocked wildfires? sources please? :)

The thing about Skyfire is that the Wildfire isn't 'handling it', their servers are, and YouTube works with most any device. Neither are examples that should encourage hope for full flash in the Wildfire, which most likely does lack the hardware for it. Pray for cyanogenmod to add it...

If the Wildfire is ARMv6, then it won't be seeing Flash from Adobe....unless Adobe change their minds on ARMv6.

This one of the reasons why I finally abandoned by much loved HTC Magic and went for ARMv7 phones like the Acer Liquid, Nexus One and Samsung Galaxy S.
