Android will give Apple a killing because of Flash

Written by Nick Farell

Claims Adobe
Adobe said that Android will win the tablet wars because Apple's gear is not as Flash friendly. Steve Jobs famously refused to allow Apple fanboys to use Flash in his gizmos, claim they were responsible crashing his fruity toys.

But Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen said the argument between Apple and his company over the lack of Adobe Flash on iOS is over. Narayen claimed the disagreement between the two companies hadn't ultimately been about the technology. "It's a business model issue, and it's about control of a platform," he said.

Now he is seeing Apple approve Adobe apps because it still thinks it has  control of the business model associated with them. The Adobe chief touted the fact that his company will have 130 million phone devices that run Flash by the end of the year. However Android, which supports Flash will eventually hit "an inflection point" with tablets and overtake the iPad, Narayen said.

Adobe is talking as if it owns the market. :o Then if in future if apple starts running flash, will adobe go about praising them? I think Apple is still crappy, if or if no flash. :P I prefer anroid anyday...... ;-) 8)

With HTML5 being in the framework for Windows 8, I'm going to reserve some judgement before we declare Flash plus whatever OS superior...

Yeah right! Fact is that no one needs flash.

FB games and other online games and videos are running in flash. Flash is more user friendly than html5 which cannot do games. Plus flash gives eye candy to same websites. Flash is lighter too but in some cases it makes your browsing unstable due to some complicated reasons. Anyway when we are dealing with latest technology, bugs exist if there is no more bugs then that is obsolete. :P

I'm actually completely satisfied with how well Flash works on my N1, it's the boatload of bugs that came with 2.3.3 and were left un-fixed in 2.3.4 that are starting to drive me crazy. Every time Google adds a new half baked feature, it breaks an older one, and its starting to piss me off.

End rant.

Right now Flash is a widely used Framework... no one can dispute that. I agree that some users will find Android more appealing because of Flash, but let us remind Adobe that they need to improve its beloved but buggy and slow products.

well flash can do things that html5 can't do that

the problem is not flash itself it's the programmer that won't efficiently use it .

There are HTML5 games. Essentially Silverlight would be the flash replacement, but I highly doubt that. Flash can be useful but one thing I noticed on my current phone over my old one that didn't do flash, are all the ads and junk and extra time to load pages full of ads on my phone.

Apple is doing what it does best, handing out one Koolaid at a time.

Of course any company will tell you that their products will bring a competitive advantage. But in this case I think they're right.
