No Flash Coming to Windows Phone as Adobe Kills Flash Mobile On Every Platform

November 9, 2011 2 Comments

Well I guess now everyone’s questions about Flash coming to Windows Phone can be put to rest. ZDnet is reporting that Adobe has stopped development of Flash on mobile devices. Sources close to Adobe have released this forthcoming announcement from the company:

Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores.  We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations.  Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations.  We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates.

Additionally, the e-mail briefing to Adobe’s partners has been summed up as follows:

  • Adobe is Stopping development on Flash Player for browsers on mobile.

Adobe is now focusing their development efforts on:

  • Applications for mobile
  • Expressive content on the desktop (in and out of browser)
  • Increasing their investments in HTML5 in general

We can all breath a sigh of relief as Microsoft chose right by going with HTML5 first on Windows Phone. We can’t say the same about Android since it has used Flash as a weapon against all other mobile operating systems.
