Submission + - Decoding Adobe's big device push (moblinzone.com)

nerdyH writes: Adobe yesterday chummed the waters around Flash and AIR as cross-platform app dev environments for mobile devices. It promised runtimes for several popular mobile OSes, including WinMo, Symbian, Palm webOS, and Android, with future RIM/Blackberry support hinted as well. Moreover, it reiterated its commitment to the Open Screen Project, an Adobe-led industry group that, if you deconstruct its name and look at its membership roster, appears tactically focused on enabling hardware acceleration of Flash/AIR on devices, as part of a larger strategy of making the runtimes ubiquitous as UI development frameworks for essentially every computer-like device with a user interface. Is Adobe positioning itself to monopolize the future's main means of media production and delivery, much as its control over Postscript licensing enabled it to dominate desktop publishing so successfully?
