Android, Flash 10.1, and battery life

There has been a lot of talk in the last few days about Nexus Ones running the Desire ROM from Paul at MoDaCo, which includes Flash 10.1. We’ve seen demonstration videos, and lots of speculation about Flash’s drain on the battery. But Adobe caught wind of the hubbub and decided to clear a few things up. First of all, they say the ROM employs an alpha version of Flash Lite, and not Flash 10.1. They also put together a long test video to give us all a better idea of the battery life we can actually expect with the final version of 10.1, and if this demonstration is representative of the final product, we should be able to watch a full movie before the phone croaks.
