Adobe Ends Flash for Mobile
Adobe has officially killed development of Flash for mobile devices. In a blog announcement
HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively. This makes HTML5 the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms.
This, of course, is the end of the line for mobile Flash video. Producers who have been putting off the decision about mobile delivery will finally be left in no doubt that they can't simply wait for Flash to work. Right now many producers will be worriedly contemplating the move to HTML5 video and the accompanying codec hassle (currently 2 versions of each video are required for cross-browser compatibility).
Showing an upbeat attitude that is more comical than convincing, Adobe claims to be excited about focusing on HTML5.
Flash will continue to be developed for the desktop but with the rising tide of mobile devices, many commentators are bound to interpret this as the beginning of the end for Flash.
