For the uninformed, adobe flash is one of the most sought after “products” that has yet to become available for most mainstream popular cell phones, ie the G1 and the iPhone. While the wait for G1 owners has been significantly shorter than iPhone owners, G1 users may not have to wait much longer. As a recent “Adobe Max 2008″ developer conference, Adobe showed off flash 10 running on Android and the G1. In laymens terms this basically means you will able to enjoy most websites in their desktop form, video’s, ad’s the whole shebang. Of course this also means you could endure the “congratulations, you’ve just won a free ipod nano” ad that has won soooo many fans over the years. Thank goodness for firefox and adblock but that’s neither here nor there.
Check out the video for a look at just how wonderful Adobe Flash is with the G1…
No release date was of course mentioned but the mere fact that its being demonstrated and available for public demonstration is just a positive sign and one I personally have been waiting for for quite sometime. Not having flash has been a hindrance on more than one occasion while web surfing for me which makes this is a much welcomed addition to the mobile world.
