Adobe to release new Flash

2010-02-16 10:13

New York - Adobe says it is still on track to launch the latest version of its Flash Player for smart phones in the first half of the year.

Adobe Systems Inc was planning to demonstrate Flash 10.1 at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, this week.

Flash is used to play web videos and games. Mobile systems that will work with the full Flash Player include the BlackBerry, Google's Android, Palm's WebOS, Windows Mobile and Symbian, used on Nokia's smart phones.

The San Jose, California, company says Flash 10.1 will also work on many tablet-style computers.

But Apple's iPad and iPhone are still off the list.

Adobe also plans to unveil its AIR software for mobile devices. It builds internet applications that can be opened without a web browser.

    I don't know why Apple has to be so 'anal' about flash. If they don't want to use it, why don't they make their own damn player? So now I sit with one of the most advanced smartphones on the planet (a 3GS) and it doesn't play alot of clips. It's things like these that'll make me declare apple is not as good as they'd like you to believe (and pay for!). Next phone: Google Droid.
