Video Daily: Adobe Flash running on Android tablet with Tegra 2 chip ZedoMax did a review this week of a new Android tablet (un-branded), and the device, using firmware 2.1, can run Adobe Flash and Air "flawlessly."
The prototype was readily available at the Web 2.0 Expo show, and showed one of the glaring differences between upcoming Android tablets and the Apple iPad which does not support Flash in any form, as the company is pushing HTML5 instead.

An Adobe spokesperson said there will be a "flood" of Android tablets hitting the market in November, although it is unclear what companies are manufacturing them.

Engadget got in contact with Nvidia, who confirmed that the tablet is using a Tegra 2 chip, which helps greatly with the "flawless" Adobe performances. "It is indeed Tegra 2. We worked closely with Adobe to show how next-gen Tegra can bring the complete web to tablets at Web 2.0. You can expect to start seeing Tegra 2 devices appearing this summer, with plenty on the way in the third and fourth quarters of the year."
