Today Adobe announced the Adobe Open Screen Project (AOSP), a partnership between Adobe and lots of ther companies (including ARM, Chunghwa Telecom, Cisco, Intel, LG Electronics Inc., Marvell, Motorola, Nokia, NTT DoCoMo, Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics Co., Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Verizon Wireless).
The project is dedicated to driving rich internet experiences to not only the pc but to a broad range of consumer devices like smartphones and televisions.
The AOSP wil be taking advantage of the flash player and, in the future, AIR to provide a consistent runtime environment.
I can hear you think: hmmm, nice sales talk.
In order to make this mission a reality, Adobe showed its commitment with a few (BIG) announcements:
- Removing restrictions on use of the SWF and FLV/F4V specifications
Now everyone can create swf players.
- Publishing the device porting layer APIs for Adobe Flash Player
If you like, you can create a flash player for your specific device.
- Publishing the Adobe Flash® Cast™ protocol and the AMF protocol for robust data services
a rich offline portal solution for mobile operators and content providers
- Removing licensing fees
I think we can haf fun with this one…
Now you can embed the flash player on the device of your desire
Now you have a reason to be excited about the future of flash and AIR.
The blogosphere has gone crazy about this last day…
