Palm Blames Flash for webOS Delays on Adobe
Although Adobe has demonstrated that Flash 10.1 works acceptably well on webOS months ago, the browser plugin for Palm’s mobile OS Webkit-based browser hasn’t launched yet and Palm says it doesn’t know what’s going on and why Adobe has not rolled out the downloads for Flash. At an AT&T seminar last week, a Palm representative says that he doesn’t “know what the hold-up is” with Adobe.
Since demoing Flash 10.1 on webOS, Adobe had announced ambitious plans to support Palm’s competing smartphone platforms, most notably Google with Android OS. The company has committed that Android 2.2 Froyo will come with Flash 10.1 Mobile support, detailing even which current crop of Android phones will get an upgrade to Froyo to get Flash 10.1.
