Adobe today unveiled a new version of Flash in an effort to expand support for the popular technology beyond the traditional Internet to mobile phones, netbooks, set-top boxes and other connected consumer devices. Flash Player 10.1 will run on platforms including Google’s Android, Research In Motion’s BlackBerry, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, Nokia’s Symbian and Palm’s webOS. Conspicuous in its absence, of course, was Apple’s iPhone.
While Adobe has said it is working with Apple, there’s still no word on a version for the iPhone — whichdominates traffic on the wireless web. However, Adobe made another announcement today — it has updated the participants in its Open Screen Project, an 18-month-old initiative promoting Flash to bridge the substantial gaps that exist between the “PC web” and other platforms such as mobile and consumer devices, to include Google and RIM.
