Kevin also pointed out that despite Apple’s tightening restrictions on what technologies developers can use for creating apps for iPhone/iPad OS, multiscreen is spreading beyond Apple’s devices. We will see a wide range of excellent smartphones, tablets, smartbooks, televisions and more coming to market. Developers can leverage the Flash Platform to create and deliver rich content and applications across a variety of these devices.
