I was at Flashcamp yesterday at Adobe. Here's what I learned:

Flash Player will run on any handset with FroYo. Both should be available in May. FP is hardware-optimized when possible, hence the dependancy on FroYo.

Bowler Hat's GridShock was being demoed on a Droid as a native APK (just like the iPhone Packager). I forgot to check the Android version, but it felt slightly laggy.

I think I heard AIR (the Android Packager) should ship around September.

Awesome Android devices will ship this year, including tablets.

What version number will FroYo get? Are you serious, May? I seriously doubt that FroYo will be released in May...

I heard Fro-Yo is Android 2.3. They publicly stated that Flash Player 10.1 will run on any phone with Fro-Yo, and that there will be a public build available in May. They did give the caveat concerning the availability of Fro-Yo on devices, so I don't know what the Android timetable is.

I'm mainly posting this info here so the ROM chefs can start thinking about an AOSP build of Fro-Yo, so we'll be able to run Flash content on a mobile device in May.

i can't remember when AOSP 2.1 was released but its at least 6 months now. i also doubt it will be May, but would be pleasantly surprised if it was.

As I wrote somewhere, there are already some simple checks for Froyo in Google Maps :) This doesn't mean we will have it soon, but we can at least hope for that :)
