Adobe says Flash is coming to the iPhone

The joy Of Wow
The word is out, kids. Adobe has apparently gone against old Jobsy's wishes, and it's planning a Flash player made all special for the iPhone (ala Windows Mobile) despite Apple's concerns that the technology -- in its current incarnation, anyway -- isn't cut out for mobile duty. During a conference call today, Chief Executive Shantanu Narayen said, "We believe Flash is synonymous with the Internet experience, and we are committed to bringing Flash to the iPhone," adding, "We have evaluated (the software developer tools) and we think we can develop an iPhone Flash player ourselves." We wouldn't be surprised if Adobe were to be given a pass on all those pesky SDK rules that would likely prevent a proper browser-based Flash component to be coded for the device, though those Apple dudes can be real sticklers for rules.



The Devil's Advocate
well as long as it does not slow the interface shouldnt be a matter of concern


Wire muncher!
We just need to wait for sometime. In the near future we'll surely get these for iphone:

1) Flash
2) Java
3) Multi-tasking
4) GNU/Linux


Cool as a CUCUMBAR ! ! !

Aspiring Novelist
Both Sun and Adobe, like complete idiots, announced that they would bring their technologies to the iPhone using the official SDK. Both companies had to retract their statements when they later realised that the SDK does not allow that.


Baap ka phone samjha tha.

They're used to companies coming to them for licensing their technology to put on their phones. Now they have announced that they're going to talk to Jobs about getting their crap (at least in the case of Sun) onto the iPhone. What an interesting reversal of roles! :lol:
