Xoom gets Flash 10.2 leak (plus Hulu)

To be honest, I have been testing this all day, but I put on a leaked beta version of Flash 10.2 with a changed user agent to enable “blocked for Android” devices. I got that version of the leak from this post off XDA-Developers.

Well to say the least, it turned out that not only was Flash not a very great experience on the default browser, but Hulu still didn’t work as well. But that’s when I decided to install Dolphin Browser HD and changed the user agent to Desktop as well. Not only did Flash run a thousand times better, but Hulu and other blocked sites worked as well.

After using it for a few hours, I now feel that this could be used a lot more often than I originally used it for. Both the Dolphin Browser and Flash 10.2 played a role in making this device a much better user experience overall. I can now use my Xoom in place of my laptop for most everyday tasks. But for a power user like me, a tablet will never replace my desktop unless it has a keyboard and multiple screen. 😀

    BTW, Flash needs to let you use multitouch to use hover features.

    1 finger down anywhere on the screen, the other second input can then be used for hoving over links and menus. This is needed for both Flash and normal browsers. JS.
