Game on in Mobile Video

Spotted in Engadget:

Flash 10.2 will be coming to both tablets and smartphones "in the next few weeks." Come again? You see, Adobe Flash 10.2 uses fewer CPU cycles to play back web video, likely providing better battery life in Android devices (and BlackBerry tablets), but Adobe told us it can't support the function in earlier versions of the Android OS -- Google had to specifically add new capabilities in Honeycomb to let Flash 10.2 take full advantage of hardware.

Sounds to me like Apple's criticisms hit Adobe where they live, and inspired them to improve things. When the next rev of Android and Flash arrive together, it might make Apple have to think.
