Although Adobe and Apple aren’t best friends, Google might lose some of the love it has for Adobe, since the company behind Flash has just confirmed the existence of Android 3.1 via a leak. They’ve mentioned the next Honeycomb in the change log of the most recent update, going something like this: “Hardware accelerated video presentation (requires Android 3.1)”.
There’s also a mention saying “Enhanced browser integration for Honeycomb tablets (requires Android 3.1)” included in the changelog. As you might already know, Honeycomb tablets don’t perform really top notch when it comes to Flash content in 720p, that causes bad framerates and slow device performance.
This might change once the Honeycomb upgrade is released and we can’t help but wonder if this is a typo from Adobe or a leak?
