Adobe Flash Player 10 on Android

    On November 17, at the Adobe MAX 2008 conference in San Francisco, Google’s director of mobile platforms, Andy Rubin, showed how Flash Player works on Android. So it became known that Adobe is porting a flash player to this platform, in particular, on the Google phone T-Mobile G1. Along with this, Flash Player may appear on the iPhone, but here the move has long been for Apple (and now it turns out that here the iPhone begins to lag).

    Kevin Lynch, chief Adobe solutions architect, showed how Flash Player works with Nokia Symbian and Windows Mobile. And everywhere it was the latest version of the player.

    I am glad that it will be Flash Player 10 that will be available under Android - which means that ActionScript3 and its innovations and add-ons such as the Vector class, a full-fledged OOP with packages and namespaces will be used - in a word, all those ECMAScript4 innovations that were recently rejected as a standard JavaScript (external link). As part of the ECMAScript4 committee, Google, Mozilla and Opera made an important contribution to their creation.
