    No more Flash/Flash Lite on Nokia devices?

    Ciao,

    Nokia just announced some development strategy changes

    Does this mean no more Flash/Flash Lite/AIR Mobile support?

    All I know is in the press release. Send me an e-mail reminder next week and I'll see if I can find any official news.

    Yes most certainly we will soley focus on Qt for smartphones and Java developers targeting this will need to move to Qt (which is not that difficult for a Java developer). For web we are going to HTML5 that is certain too. I don't expect to have details until next week I should have more then.

    It is a bit difficult to move to Qt, if you do app development for Series 40, though. (Unless Series 40 starts to also support Qt.)

    When Apple okays flash, Nokia 'No-kays' flash ! Interesting. Qt requires 13 MB download on most devices which support Qt. Unless Qt is built in, users will hesistate to download Qt apps. As of now only one device has Qt built in.

    Exclamation Re: No more Flash/Flash Lite on Nokia devices?

    Hold your horses

    Where has Nokia stated that there will not be Flash? There have been no news about _not_ having Flash. Nokia has only said that the future offering will be focusing on Qt. There have been no news about removing NFL or Flash from Series 40 or Symbian or MeeGo. And of course all the new Symbian and MeeGo have Qt preinstalled

    Why would anyone think that just because there is an announcement of what the focus is _now_, it would somehow affect any of the devices already in the market

    Ciao Riku,

    thanks for the clarifications, also Forum Nokia commented on twitter about this.
    The issue was about the PR which seemed to cut off any development alternative other then Qt and HTML5.
    In fact many thought J2ME was also gone.

    Glad to see Nokia continue the support and it would be great to have a more clear roadmap so we can continue to invest development!

    Meego will not include Java 2ME but the series 40 devices will.

    Also getting back to you on Flash the answer is "Our support for Flash has not changed."

    Re: No more Flash/Flash Lite on Nokia devices?

    I understand Nokia... moving to opensource... flash will no longer benefit from any new APIs, that's for sure... I don't think that Nokia will block flash like apple did...

    anyway... from what I see I will go to WRT with HTML5 canvas for games... APIs from WRT used to make games in canvas HTML5...

    look what hit I've done with WRT: http://store.ovi.com/search?q=airpainter 400K downloads in first 20 days...

    with web I'm familiar... and Qt is not that great for me: got no camera API...

    a cool idea for next level of personalization is .swf as wallpaper in homescreen - live wallpaper like, and even more: develop custom home-screen UIs
