Some reports on the net have claimed that Adobe has inferred that its Flash 10.1 player won’t be ready until the second half of 2010.

Flash 10.1, which brings with it mobile support for Android, BlackBerry and WebOS phones, was expected to be unleashed in the first half of the year.

And it appears that it still will be, according to Phone Scoop. The site claims that Adobe sent it an email saying that Flash would be delivered to various smartphone platforms on schedule, before the end of the second quarter.

The reason some folks have said that Flash 10.1 would be delayed is due to the misinterpretation of comments made by Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen in a Fox Business News interview.

He said that smartphone companies such as Google would be releasing versions of Flash on their devices in the second half of 2010.

But Flash 10.1 will be out before then, on target. He was merely referring to the time it will take for said companies to get the technology deployed on their hardware.

So there you have it. In other Flash news, the private beta of Flash 10.1 for Android is now underway.
