Flash on Smartphones; Thanks Adobe
One of the drags of smart phones today is that they don't feature full support for flash (it's been using a lighter version up until now). Today that all changed as Adobe announced improvements to the Adobe Flash Platform at Adobe Max (Adobe's developer conference) which makes Flash on mobile devices a reality.
Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 enables rich Web content, video and applications to reach more users across a broader set of devices thanks to a consistent runtime across desktops and mobile devices. The new Flash player is expected to be available for a series of mobile platforms including Google Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Palm webOS and Windows Mobile.
Adobe also announced new HTTP streaming technology for video delivered on the Flash Platform, demonstrated upcoming features of Adobe® AIR® 2 software, released a second beta of Adobe® Flash® Builder and Flash® Catalyst software, and made available new Adobe Flash Platform Services for collaboration.
“We’re excited to be launching such a broad spectrum of advancements to the Flash Platform at Adobe MAX 2009,” said Kevin Lynch, chief technology officer at Adobe. “By delivering rapid innovation across tools, runtimes, services and servers, we are enabling the large and vibrant ecosystem of designers and developers to drive the Web forward with rich content and applications.”
