The company said that it will bring Flash technology in the mobile operating system like Google’s Android, Microsoft’s Windows mobile , Nokia’s Symbian and Pam’s WebOS. So, it will open a new avenue for Flash developers and content creators to develop rich applications for mobile platform. The company didn’t announce similar plan for Apple iPhone or RIM’s Blackberry as of yet.
Adobe’s Flash technology is considered very resource intensive across the world. Adobe has created “Open Screen project” to develop Flash technology on a single platform for Desktop, Mobile etc. Apple CEO Steve Jobs thinks that Flash is not good enough for iPhone for its requirement of huge amount of resources. Although, Adobe claims that they are working with RIM to make Blackberry Flash enabled.
