Can Firefox be downloaded to a HTC Jetstream AT&T Tablet?

Posted

I'm looking for a tablet that Firefox can be downloaded to. I need to be able to use Firefox and Flash with external mouse capabilities. Will the AT&T...HTC Jetstream be an option? I've also looked at the Asus Eee Pad but notice it is may be having trouble working together with Firefox. Is that still true?

As I said the mobile Firefox releases does not support Flash yet. As for the dock well I have not used the dock or a mouse with this tablet yet to know.

The HTC Jetstream has a Snapdragon apq8060 which is a ARMv7 cpu and 1 GB DDR2 RAM so the mobile Firefox should technically work.

However Flash does not work on the mobile Firefox yet though may be by Firefox 8.0 I think.

The mobile Firefox does work on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet, although there are some known problems with the keyboard dock.

Thank you James! Do you know if the Asus Eee Pad alone without the additional keyboard dock would work with an external mouse? If I can run Firefox with Flash and use an external mouse I may be able to use this as a solution until the keyboard dock bug is fixed. I do digital storybooking with a program that requires wifi connection, firefox and flash but I don't see how not having mouse capabilities would be user friendly enough.

Limited Flash support may be in Firefox 10. This is rather basic support for the Android version of Flash and should be considered an Alpha quality feature.
