Waking up to a surprise on a day as gloomy as this one (at least in my native area of Wisconsin) is always appreciated. Sometime last night, Android And Me stumbled across a video from Ryan Stewart – self-proclaimed evangelist for Adobe (is this even an official title?) – showing off Flash 10.1 Mobile on a Google Nexus One (likely one of the bunch of Adobe employees that received a Froyo-stocked Nexus One as a gift).

The video showed Flash in several different forms. He demoed a game/application of sorts, we saw him scroll through a flash-enabled stock chart, and saw him play a couple of videos – all right within the browser window. For the most part, everything looked smoothed. I did notice some choppiness at the beginning of each video he tried to play from different sites, but that’s to be expected as it looked like content was still trying to load (and because this probably isn’t a final build).

As Ryan went to retire the video (the 6:30 minute mark), we also got a brief glimpse of the version of Android 2.2 he was running. For starters, the launch area seems to have gotten a drastic change. On the left and right of the classic “Nexus Launcher”, there are buttons to launch the dialer and web browser, respectively. It’d be pretty cool (but unlikely due to the style) if you could customize those to your liking.
