Home Your IT Mobility Adobe bringing Flash to LiMo
Adobe has joined the LiMo Foundation and will develop a version of Flash for the mobile platform.

The LiMo Foundation aims to provide an open and consistent Linux-based mobile platform for phones and other devices.

The founder members are NEC, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, Panasonic, Samsung and Vodafone, and the roster has grown to include other carriers, hardware manufacturers and software developers including ARM, Ericsson, Huawei, LG, Marvell, McAfee, Motorola, Mozilla, Opera, and Verizon.

More than 40 handsets have been launched.

Demand for Flash on handsets comes from two directions. Content creators already familiar with Adobe's tools would like to be able to extend their reach to as many devices as possible. Indeed, one of the key messages behind Adobe's Flash marketing to developers was the very high proportion of desktop and notebook PCs that were equipped to run Flash content.

The other side of the coin are the users that expect to be able to use Flash content on their phones so they get the same view of the web as they do from a PC.

What form will Flash support for LiMo take? Please read on.
