Adobe on Monday released new details about its forthcoming Flash Player 10.1 application, designed for for smartphones, smartbooks, netbooks, PCs and other devices connected to the Internet. A public developer beta of the browser-based runtime is scheduled to be released later this year. It will cover Windows Mobile and Palm webOS in the mobile realm, as well as Windows, Mac OS and Linux desktop operating systems. Public betas for Google Android and Symbian mobile OSes are scheduled for early 2010, and RIM is working with Adobe to bring Flash to the BlackBerry.
So, when two leaders in the industry can't GTST what kind of example does it set?
I just happily use my iPhone to visit the *BILLIONS* of web-sites (interactive and non) that don't even use Flash.
I don't remember how many times I have used my iTouch and hit a site that needed flash and had to go somewhere else to get my info or play a game.
Now with the advent of this Mobile Flash seeming to be an answer to many prayers, including mine, we might be forced to deal without it because someone thinks otherwise.
Personally I like the iPhone and the iTouch. I think that they are perfect for a multimedia platform that is portable, mind you I have never really been a fan or supporter of anything Apple.
That's why it's really confusing for me to not understand why Apple hasn't grabbed at this to improve on their systems. I'm starting to wonder what Apple's true idea/purpose of the iPhone or iTouch are. It's just as confusing as to why they decided to put a camera on the Nano? Huh? Seriously, the Touch would have been a better choice. I think that Apple really needs to get off their High-Horse before people who use their products find something else to replace them.
