Adobe announced a bunch of news today before the start of Mobile World Congress. I think Robert Scoble has the best roundup. The biggest? In my opinion it’s great to see Palm join the Open Screen Project. The Pre seems like it’s going to be a big, big deal, and getting Flash on it would be great for smartphone users. The other big piece of news? The $10 million fund that Adobe and Nokia have created for developers to build applications that work on Nokia devices and use Flash/AIR.
Most of this will be available in 2010, but I can tell you that this is the year of mobile at Adobe. We’re going to be doing a number of public betas, our tooling will start having robust mobile support, and the entire ecosystem is going to move forward. But we’ve also announced the availability of a downloadable Flash Lite runtime for Nokia and Windows Mobile devices, so if you’re targeting Flash Lite 3, you can bundle your applications with the runtime so you can deploy it all at once.
Stay tuned for more mobile Flash Platform stuff this year.Tweet
