Google Android updates don’t often get leaked and are often well kept secrets until the day of official announcment. Not this one though, but it wasn’t Google that did anything wrong, it was Adobe who recently unleashed its new Flash Player 10.2 app update and in it mentions some not yet meant to be disclosed info.
The update says that Flash Player 10.2 supports “hardware accelerated video”, provided that a user is running the unannounced Android 3.1 operating system. This should drastically increase video playback performance, specifically with HD video, on Honeycomb tablets.
There is no word from the search engine giant when Android 3.1 might be unveiled, but possibly in a week’s time at Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco. In the meantime, we can start guessing what sugary name is to follow.
