Adobe Flash to be released on the G1 Phone!

Adobe brings Flash to T-Mobile G1 - Android and Adobe Flash, together at last

While Steve Jobs continues to block Adobe’s efforts to bring Flash capability to the iPhone OS, Google’s Andy Rubin took to the stage at the Adobe MAX developer’s conference to show the world what Flash looks like on the T-Mobile G1. During the keynote, Rubin and Adobe’s Kevin Lynch showed off the fruits of Google and Adobe’s collaboration. Running on the Google Android OS, the T-Mobile G1 was used to demonstrate that a full-HTML web browsing experience just isn’t complete without a Flash integration.

“We are excited to be working alongside Adobe to bring Flash technology to Android,” said Andy Rubin, director of mobile platforms at Google. “Adobe Flash is crucial to a rich Internet and content experience on mobile devices and we are thrilled that Google will be one of the first companies along with the Open Handset Alliance to bring Flash technology to the smartphone market.”

With Flash Lite bringing Adobe’s Flash technology to Symbian, Windows Mobile, and now Android smartphones, the iPhone OS has been singled out as the only smartphone to boast a full-HTML browser that lacks the ability to support Flash-based content.

Adobe announced that their new Flash 10 offering would speed up Flash performance on Mac computers, and it has been speculated that the move to optimize the Flash experience in the Mac space was largely motivated by Adobe’s desire to get in good with Steve Jobs. For what it’s worth, Flash on the Android platform and iPhone-competing T-Mobile G1 might just spur Jobs to allow Adobe to develop a Flash solution for the iPhone.



uH Hum.... an ETA would be nice guys.

hmm, i'm assuming that the inability to view flash 'things?' online is why most phones' http web browsers can't view some things?

that's teh suck

well...if your ETF is less than $240 it would be cheaper to go for a $10/mo less plan, not to mention you get your g1, and I get your old phone for proposing this awesome idea.

wonder if t-mobile has any deal going on where they waive activation fee/$$ off your bill if you switch from another network?...

If it has anything to do with this other announcement from Adobe, it's looking like 2nd half of 2009.
