Flash Goes Mobile

Flash software brings a lot of life to the Internet. Now it's trying to find its place on mobile phones. Last week, Adobe, which owns Flash, revealed a deal with Verizon Wireless in which the United States' second-largest wireless company will build Flash into mobile phones. That'll let developers build Flash-based apps for mobile devices, presumably creating richer content than they can today. Verizon hopes that will spur data service sales. It's a big deal for Adobe, too, and could spark deals with other carriers at a time when Flash's central role in creating rich media apps for the Web is being challenged by new development technologies such as Ajax.
