At the Mobile World Congress 2010 Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt discusses the incredible browsing experiences coming to the Android platform. As EricT states, a critical component currently missing on mobile devices is Flash Player. As members of the Open Screen Project we are working with Google to bring Flash Player and AIR to Android devices, enabling an open ecosystem connecting developers with consumers.
Of course the demo demons were in attendance, but ultimately Eric was able to show video and gaming experiences running beautifully on Android. Of course gaming experiences on the web are largely created in Flash, in fact some 75% of online games run on the Flash Platform.
Later in the year it will be possible to mix and match your distribution and monetization models using Adobe AIR on Android, and repackage those applications for Apple devices targeting the AppStore.
