Flash Player 10.1 for mobile is a significant step for the Flash Platform but I believe tablet devices is where Flash could really flourish.
Don’t get me wrong, being able to check-out Flash content on mobile phones is pretty damn impressive, but the small screen is always going to create usability issues, especially for the majority of existing Flash content already out there.
I believe that Flash really needs to get some significant penetration across tablets for the technology to stay relevant. So this video from Adobe TV showing off Flash Player 10.1 running on the Samsung Galaxy Tab has got me pretty excited – yeah I know, I’m a Flash fan-boy.
The Galaxy Tab is a gorgeous looking device and its 7-inch screen should help prevent many of the usability issues I’ve experienced running Flash on the more restricted mobile phone screens. The video doesn’t show off as much content as I’d like but hopefully the Galaxy Tab’s hardware spec is sufficient to run most Flash-based sites that users are likely to visit.
