Adobe brings Flash to future phones

Adobe Flash logoQualcomm and Adobe said they have worked together as part of the Open Screen Project to optimize and increase performance for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 to support Snapdragon chipsets.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets are aimed at smartphones and smartbooks and Toshiba will be one of the first companies to launch products using the technology.

Adobe said that Flash Player 10.1 is aimed to optimize graphic processors for accelerated video and graphics and aims to do so while reducing power consumption. The beta version of Flash Player 10.1 will become available before the end of the year, said Adobe.

Qualcomm claims that Snapdragon chipsets will allow smartbooks to run on one battery charge all day and give customizable interfaces and constant connectivity.

Research in Motion (RIM) also said it is joining the Open Screen Project today and will bring Flash Player to BlackBerry smartphones.

The Open Screen Project has nearly 50 partners including Google, Intel, Nokia, NTT Docomo, Palm, LG, HTC, ARM, the BBC and Samsung.

Mmm, I think that controversy was all a bit weak.I mean, we all know that the consouciln is broadly true the libraries and services available across Linux distributions make for a scruffy, frustrating and often unreliable target. That just doesn't seem to me like the primary problem here.I mean: it's hard to port anything to or from Windows a modern web browser does a lot of stuff and is hard to port anywhere you have a few more decisions to make on Linux than on Windows (though really, not that many more there are plenty of competing toolkits on Windows too) Chrome seems to do sandboxing at some level that I can't pretend to understand anything about but that is apparently fiddly to do and needs kernel support Chrome developers have put a lot of work into making sure it feels shiny and nice and snappy etc to use on Windows, and much of that work doesn't port at all you can't please everyoneI'm not really seeing the part that explains whether, or why, it's been any harder porting Chrome to Linux than porting it to OS/X, for example.(Of course the one area where Linux really _is_ harder is in packaging and deployment, and they aren't even talking about that yet! What joys we have yet to come.)One thing I did find amusing about that Slashdot thread was seeing it descend once again into the argument about whether we were or weren't sufficiently warned about the instability of KDE 4.0 when it first came out. I wonder when, or whether, that argument will ever stop?Chris
