Adobe might not get much respect from Apple for its Flash media player technology, but some other industry notables have lined up in support of the latest release, version 10.1.
The latest round-up of Flash 10.1 fans includes Google, nVidia and Viacom, who all see the technology as essential for delivering rich media on the Web. Enterprise Mobile Today has the details.
You won’t find Apple on the list of Flash supporters, but Adobe Systems has lined up some big name backers for the latest version of its mobile media player, released on Tuesday. Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE) released statements of support from a number of leading mobile players, content providers and analysts for its long-awaited Flash Player 10.1.
Adobe’s popular Flash format is widely used to display video and animated pages on the Web, but Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has refused to accept the software for its iPhone and iPad products over what CEO Steve Jobs has said are persistent security and performance concerns. Jobs has also repeatedly claimed Adobe hasn’t moved quickly enough to deliver an acceptable version of Flash for mobile devices.
