    One of the most common technologies for watching video on a computer will soon be available for most smartphones.

    Flash software is used to deliver around 75% of online video and is the key technology that underpins websites such as YouTube and Google Video.

    Until now, many smartphones and netbooks have used a "light" version of the program, because of the limited processing power of the devices.

    The new software is intended to work as well on a smartphone as a desktop PC.

    Adobe, the maker of Flash, said it should be available on most higher-end handsets by 2010, although Apple's iPhone would continue not to use the software.

    "The sort of rich apps we now see being delivered on PCs will now be coming to the phone," Ben Wood, director of mobile research at analyst firm CCS Insight, told BBC News.

    "You'll be able to access a lot of the cool stuff that web designers are coming up with."

    Who cares. It was already on the PSP along with several other devices since 2005 or sooner.

    It's a good upgrade, but not news worthy in my opinion.

    Most devices only had Flash Lite, it didn't have the full capability of the latest Flash Player.

    It had flash 5 or so, I cannot remember. So the article is talking about the latest flash?

    Flash Lite 3 is on the Wii (its functionality is somewhere between Flash 8 and Flash 9). It is quite a commercial failure, though, so I wonder if it will really be widespread in a few years...

    I'd be nice if we got something better than Flash 7 on mobile web browsers. Why won't they release the SDK for Flash 10!?!?!

    Just to clarify, the PSP does have flash but it is Lite. Meaning you can't go on Youtube or what not.

    YouTube uses the Flash PLAYER. The videos are encoded in H.264 for the iPhail

    Because they're too frightened of their application cash cow being eroded by free online flash games most likely.

    Apparently so. Doesn't matter though, on most forums, you can get perma for double posting.

    No forum is more fascist than facepunch, that can be guaranteed.
    I myself fear a ban for every post I make.

    I admit to being banned a couple of times, one being pretty stupid but got to have your warnings. In my opinion, we should have banning up to 2-4 weeks instead of just 3 days or a week. Bit harsh, but your taught a lesson.

    Also, sorry to hijack your thread, we should have 3 or maybe 5 stars under our avatar, each one highlighted red when we get banned, etc. Then a proper ban "get off this forum" one.

    Back to the point, would mean alot more flash games but better youtube capabilities, etc.
