HTC HD2 to be First Windows Phone to get Flash – On 7 Series

There’s certainly evidence to support that the HTC HD2 could get an upgrade to Windows Phone 7 Series, but at the same time there isn’t any actual proof except for cryptic Twitter messages and postings on forums etc…

This next rumour comes from an Adobe representative on their forums where he answers questions based on when Flash will be hitting certain mobile devices and different OS’s along with some time-frame questions and answers mixed in.

When asked about the phones the rep replied…

We’re waiting for OS updates from Google and Microsoft before we can distribute a Flash Player Beta. We expect this to happen early this year. Thank you for your patience!

The first Android devices that will support Flash Player are the Droid and Nexus One. The first WinMo device will be the HTC HD2.

And in another reply, the Adobe rep mentions:

You can expect the final release for Android to be available mid-year. All Android devices that meet our minimum s/w and h/w requirements will be supported. Unfortunately, I cannot say a lot more publicly about our port to the Android platform at this time.

As for WinMo, we have made the tough decision to defer support for that platform until WinMo7. This is due to the fact that WinMo6.5 does not support some of the critical APIs that we need.

I’ve put in bold the two separate answers that speak of the HD2 and Windows Phone 7 Series. The first quote mentions that the HTC HD2 will support the flash player, but then the second quote goes on to say that WinMob6.5 won’t be supported and that they are deferring support to WinMo7 (or Windows Phone 7 Series as it’s now known).

Again, none of this is “solid” evidence, but with the hidden RAM found on T-Mobile devices and random tweets about the HD2 getting WP7S it’s certainly giving people some glimpse of hope.

We shall see closer to September when the HD2 will be out of date anyway and new phones will have arrived.
