In case you missed it, Adobe was at Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco this past week discussing and demoing some of the latest Flash Platform technologies running across devices. We showed Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2 (available in the first half of this year) running on the Google Nexus One, Motorola Droid and Palm Pre, as well as the Dell tablet. Seeing the latest builds of Flash Player and AIR in action you could see firsthand how developers can deliver the same great experiences users expect on their desktops, right on their devices.
The theme of this year’s Web 2.0 Expo was “The Power of Platforms” – fitting for us. CTO Kevin Lynch spoke to the need for “freedom of choice on the Web,” highlighted Flash innovations and reiterated Adobe’s commitment to HTML5 by “making the best tools in the world” to support it. Check out the video below to see Kevin’s onstage Q&A interview. Also, if you couldn’t attend Web 2.0 you can see listen to 2 of the popular sessions we had in the booth. Just click the links below.
As Kevin Lynch said last week in his blog post, “[Adobe will be delivering] Flash Player 10.1 for Android smartphones as a public preview at Google I/O in May, and then a general release in June. From that point on, an ever increasing number and variety of powerful, Flash-enabled devices will be arriving which we hope will provide a great landscape of choice.”
