Adobe Working Hard to Get Flash Onto Phones

Today the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Adobe "is reengineering its software so Flash-based games and videos can run on different handsets as well as PCs without being modified." Adobe says it has teams working to create Flash support for every smartphone platform, including webOS, S60, Android, BlackBerry OS and iPhone OS. Adobe has partnered with chip and phone makers, as well as developers in hopes that a cross-platform version of Flash can be created. Flash is used by many web sites. Giving smartphones the power to run Flash would make them much more PC-like when it comes to gaming and browsing the web.

Why do people want Flash on their phone?

Think about it. The majority of Flash content (aside from videos, which most phones have far-superior standalone apps for) , all you're left with for Flash is annoying web sites and annoying advertisements (Lowermybills, Free Smileys, etc.) Every other time, it's a resource hog. I'm reminded of the days I had Flash mobile for my Pocket PC and all it did was make the already-not-usable browser even less so.

Free download from Freeware.com. Great Youtube player. Nice clear vids and boosts the sound levels dramatically!

Awesome!

Now the underpowered CPU in my BlackBerry can be constantly spiked to 100% usage while browsing the Web in addition to my laptop! I can't wait! Eh?

Uh huh...

Just like they been "working hard" at bringing us the 64-bit version of their flash player for Windows. Adobe is so lazy and sad thing is they know they can take their precious time because we're all at the mercy of these bastards. I wouldn't expect Flash for phones no time soon. They can even do something as simple as getting a 64-bit player for Windows! Please
