In the 10.1 release of Flash Player, things have been significantly optimized for mobile devices to ensure it performs well. It even knows things like if the particular flash content is actually off screen (i.e. on the bottom of the page you have not scrolled to yet) and won't waste CPU cycles playing it unless you scroll down.
It also has full gesture and touch support so there will be some really great interaction on the droid.
Exactly. This is what all the fuss is about. The 10.1 Flash player has been optimized for the mobile market!
