As expected, Adobe has announced that the latest versions of Flash and air are packed with APIs for mobile, like multi-touch, gestures, accelerometer, mass storage, peer-to-peer, and UDP networking. Lately BlackBerry has been pretty vocal about their upcoming Flash support, but webOS, Android, Symbian, and Windows Phones are all a part of the Open Screen Project, and will enjoy the same treatment. Using video players in the browser is the big thing, but really only the beginning – Flash opens up a whole new area of native and web apps that we have yet to really see on mobile, outside of the odd appearance in Fennec or Skyfire. iPhone remains conspicuously absent from the party, and Apple may have some catching up to do once all of these platforms get settled in to the new technology. If you’re a developer, you can get started with Flash Player 10.1 from the Adobe Labs here, or air 2 here.
