It’s been a few months since we last heard about Adobe and RIM partnering up to bring Flash to BlackBerry smartphones. At that time the official release was said to be “next summer” which is this summer and it looks like they’re still on track because Adobe sent out the following press release:
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, Calif. 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.
Very exciting! There are no details as to which mobile devices will support Adobe’s AIR software but chances are BlackBerry devices are included since Flash is on the way anyway. Adobe Flash and AIR software on BlackBerry devices. I don’t know about you but it gives me the chills just thinking of all the new possibilities this integration will bring!
