Adobe Soon is Adobe’s most popular mobile product

Adobe’s newest Flash Player 10.1 will soon be available on Google’s Android “Froyo” 2.2 operating system for smartphones and other devices, and Adobe’s Murarka said other smartphones would soon support Flash.

“You’re going to see Flash not only on Android. Consumers will see devices from Palm, Research in Motion Ltd’s Blackberry, Nokia’s Symbian and Microsoft Windows Phone 7 support the full Flash Player,” Murarka said.

Emphasis mine. It’s always “soon” with these guys.

Adobe Flash doesn’t run on the iPhone, iPad, or anywhere mobile.

That said, many major websites still do not support HTML 5 fully, so iPhone and iPad users will contine to have a broken experience when it comes to the Web.

And so will every other mobile platform user.

With the possible exception of a Nokia device only 50 people have heard of, there’s nothing that has a Flash experience like the desktop (i.e., the kind Adobe likes to brag about). And Adobe has already stated smartphones pre-installed with this alleged support have been pushed back to the last half of the year.

Meanwhile, the JooJoo (with better hardware than the average smartphone), runs the infamous Flash 10.1 — allegedly the saving grace of Flash on mobile devices — and the results are horrendous. Adobe distanced themselves from the JooJoo as fast as they could, but shortly thereafter pushed back the date as mentioned above.

I have no issue with everybody pointing out that Flash doesn’t run on the iPad/iPhone. I do have an issue with those people not mentioning in the same breath that neither does anybody else to speak of.

Adobe can’t get Flash to work on mobiles, and have delivered nothing but promises. How about taking them to task for that instead of pointing out that today’s devices don’t run what doesn’t exist?
