    Default Rumor: Adobe to Bring Flash to iPhone


    Adobe and ARM have announced that they are working together to optimize and enable Adobe Flash Player 10 and Adobe AIR for ARM Powered devices. The optimization is targeted to the existing ARM11 family, which includes the iPhone.

    They have jointly released this statement;

    “The collaboration is expected to accelerate mobile graphics and video capabilities on ARM platforms to bring rich Internet applications and Web services to mobile devices and consumer electronics worldwide.”

    The details of this joint venture are somewhat lacking but it appears to be that the optimization will deliver Adobe Flash to existing mobile devices that are based on the latest ARM platforms. The optimization is set to be available in the latter half of 2009.

    PC Magazine writes, “devices with at least 200 MHz processors, more than around 16 Mbytes of RAM and a 'completely capable [Web] browser' will be able to render Web-based Flash content." The iPhone of course fits right into all of the said categories and has caused speculators to wonder if this could mean Flash functionality for the current iPhone.

    However, just back this past March Steve Jobs, claimed that the iPhone is not capable of the full Flash support;

    “As Jobs put it Tuesday during the company's annual shareholder meeting, Apple's iPhone, with all its cutting-edge mobile Internet trickery, needs something much better than the current Flash player that Adobe makes for cellphones. The Flash Player option that fits the bill is made for devices like laptops that are larger than the iPhone; as a consequence, it performs too slowly on the iPhone, he said.”

    In the end the decision is up to Apple. Although current iPhone SDK terms prevent Adobe from creating a fully integrated version of Flash for the iPhone.

    Yep we have talked and talked about this. Adobe is going to launch it on a WinMo phone first from what I have read elsewhere.

    Flash to me is no big deal. I don't run across very much that is not viewable on my phone.

    I personally have given up on listening to news about flash until i see a damn video or SOMETHING. its all the same thing over and over and over again. When i start seeing i will start believing. Period
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    Default Adobe Flash iphone
    Was talking to a colleague who is an official trainer for Adobe products. He said he was at a roadshow and one of the main guys (only one) had Flash running on his iphone. He said it was working really well. So the only thing that appears to be holding things back, as usual, are apple.

    And still we ask where's the cut and paste?

    Maybe, Apple will release it in the future but it'll probably mean buying new hardware, a new and improved iphone etc

    Apple should let the market decide. We all know Adobe owns Flash, not Apple so if it runs slowly on the iPhone we can simply uninstall it if we don't like how it performs.

    Well, at least they didn't get our hopes up for anything soon.

    Now I can forget about it for a while and we can all stop anticipating an upcoming release.

    i don't understand why apple would reject adobe's wonderful products. a high percentage of the internet now has flash in some form or another.
    hasn't adobe been working on this ever since the first gens?
