Adobe says 53% of all smartphones to be shipped in 2012 will support Flash
If you believe Steve Jobs, Adobe Flash is the root of all evil, the cause of global warming and the reason for the traffic jam on the Interstate highway this morning. It also, according to the Apple CEO, is on its way out-soon to be replaced with HTML5. However, Adobe's director of technical marketing, Anup Murarka, begs to differ with Mr. Jobs and says that 53% of all smartphones to be shipped in 2012 will support Flash. To put this in perspective, this year 200 million smartphones are expected to ship, and 10% will support Flash. In 2012, 300 million smartphones are expected to ship with more than half able to run Adobe's software. Now that would be a nice large number of handsets supporting something that is supposed to be dying. According to Murarka, consumers will be able to get Flash-supported phones on some Android, Symbian, webOS, BlackBerry OS and Windows Phone 7 powered devices. The Adobe executive says, "Maybe we don’t get to the iPhone or iPad. If anything, we’re seeing continued growth in the install base and the usage of Flash and we see that continuing to grow." With Apple expected to push hard for HTML5, Adobe is going to need to make use of every second of the head start that they now have.
