Looks like Flash on tablets and smartphones could be in for a serious performance boost this year thanks to Nvidia’s Tegra 2, which was announced at CES. Featuring hardware-accelerated Flash support, Nvidia are claiming a five fold increase in Flash performance on hardware that uses the chip.

Several Flash-enabled Tegra 2 powered devices were announced at the event including the LG Optimus 2X and the Motorola Xoom. I must say the Xoom in particular caught my eye. With most OEMs opting to build 7″ tablets, it really is great to see Motorola have the guts to go with a larger 10″ screen.

With Flash Player and Adobe AIR making it onto more, and increasing more powerful devices, it could be an interesting year for the platform. Oh and Android Honeycomb is looking pretty nice too.
