In today’s Adobe Systems Q2 earnings call, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen said that Adobe is seeing “tremendous adoption” of Flash across not just PCs, but all kinds of devices.
Narayen stated that Adobe has ported Flash Player 10 to multiple smartphone platforms, including Google’s Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and Palm WebOS. A beta release of Flash Player 10 for smartphone platforms will be available to developers at Adobe’s MAX conference this October.
In response to a question specifically about the Apple iPhone, Narayen declared that Adobe is “absolutely committed” to bringing Flash to the iPhone but went on to state, “We need more APIs and cooperation to bring the capabilities of Flash to the iPhone.”
“We think it is in Apple and Adobe’s best interest” to make Flash available on the iPhone Narayen stated, adding “We are constantly reaching out to them.”
