Adobe Demos Flash on Palm Pre at MWC

Adobe is using Mobile World Congress to showcase Flash on a variety of mobile platforms, most notably the Palm Pre. We are anticipating the release of webOS 1.4, which will support Flash, but will require a plug-in that will be available for download from the App Catalog. It’s unclear when the required Flash plug-in will be available once Palm webOS 1.4 hits. So, how does Flash perform on the Palm Pre? What can you expect? Sashca Segan of PC Magazine writes,

“The implementation runs both video and games, and once the video or game is running, it runs smoothly – but getting there felt sluggish. The Palm presenter blamed it on a very slow Internet connection. But Flash on the Nexus One definitely loaded more quickly and felt snappier.”

Segan goes on to write that we could be “potentially several months from this Flash implementation going live”. Perhaps our thinking that we’d see Flash on the Palm Pre in February was off base. Stay tuned.

Rumor: webOS 1.4 To Hit February 15th

The official word from Palm was that webOS 1.4 would be available sometime in early February. According to a tipster at PreCentral, an email indicates webOS 1.4 will be available on February 15th. The email was sent to Sprint stores indicating upcoming software updates. This certainly looks promising for Sprint customers. We’re not sure if those of you on Verizon will receive the update on the same day.


The February 15th date isn’t set in stone, but this certainly looks promising. Anyone up for shooting videos on your webOS device?
