MWC: Adobe Says Flash Not Ready for Windows Mobile 7
While Adobe, maker of the Adobe Flash browser plugin, has been working with team Microsoft for a Flash 10.1 edition for Windows Mobile, that version will not be compatible with Windows Mobile 7 at launch–Windows Mobile 7 is widely anticipated to be announced at Mobile World Congress in a few short hours. We have learned from an unofficial source that Adobe has been testing Flash for Windows Mobile 6.x in Internet Explorer Mobile, which is based on the desktop-grade IE 6 protocol.
According to PhoneScoop, Adobe has issued a statement that says that forthcoming information regarding Flash and Windows Phone 7 Series will be announced at a future date:
“Microsoft and Adobe are working closely together. While the newest version of Windows Phone won’t support Flash at initial availability, both companies are working to include a browser plug-in for the full Flash player in future versions of Windows Phone. More details will be shared at Microsoft MIX next month.”
