The BBC iPlayer has been optimized to run on mobiles running Android 2.2 'Froyo' operating system, a move that will enable users to catch-up with their favorite shows on their handsets.
But, the Android 2.2 is the only version that will support new service as only it brings Flash 10.1 support, which is capable of supporting the BBC iPlayer.
Flash 10.1 will enable the BBC iPlayer to run smoothly at a Flash stream of 400kbps on the handsets.
It may be noted here that only the Google Nexus One features the Android 2.2; however, more mobiles such as the HTC Desire are expected to be upgraded to the latest version of android.
Android 3.0 OS, which is codenamed 'Gingerbread', will likely be released in December this year.
