As of today, Android users can now take advantage of Flash 10.2 beta on their Froyo, Gingerbread and Honeycomb devices. Honeycomb users are getting a beta release, though, so full hardware acceleration is turned off until more development is done. But for all of you who went out and got the Xoom, you can watch clips inside and outside the browser in 480p right now. Support for 720p is still on the way.
