For people who aren't focused on the mobile world, you might want to
look at some of the coverage of the 3GSM that is going on in Barcelona
the above link is to coverage of a new PDA Phone from Samsung that is
really a Media/Phone (think iPhone). While it doesn't sport the
multi-touch screen that the iPhone proposes, it does have a
touchscreen, an innovative (well at least different) slider
keyboard--Samsung has really been pushing different layouts of
keyboards in their smart phones of late--and dig this, the GUI is
built on Flash. Yup, that's an Adobe Flash GUI for a phone.
so! to those who care, what is the advantage of using Flash over using
the native WM6 or Palm OS interface ingredients?
Is there anyone on the list playing with Flash for embedded software like this?
Does anyone know what the operator response to Flash interfaces have been?
I love the look of these screens, as they really pop and engage in
ways I haven't seen from Windows, Symbian, Palm, etc. and I'm sure the
interstitial motion is just great. But is there a cost to run an
emulated engine like this on these devices?
I'm sure there are a host of other questions, but I'm mostly concerned
with the design and design implementation issues of using Flash.
