Palm Pre – Progress Update

The last time we had a Palm update we saw the Flash Player running in multiple cards (application instances) on Web OS.  We had made great progress with the pause and resume functionality, to fit in with the unique nature of WebOs multi-tasking capabilities.

At CES 2010 Palm talked publicly about the availability of the Flash Player 10.1 for their devices.  The intention is to ship it as part of an OS update, and also in their App Store so that users can install the player as required (if they already have the OS update for example).  So you can start to see the promise of the Open Screen Project taking shape, Flash Player 10.1 updates over-the-air for all Palm users.  Additionally Palm indicated that they are going to ship “soon”.

At MAX we still had some work to do with Palm to tidy up certain features, hardware acceleration for video and providing a full screen experience for games and video playback.

In this update video Adrian shows the progress made in the last few months around gaming site optimization.
