Adobe Positioned in Visionaries Quadrant for Mobile Consumer Application Platforms
Adobe Systems Incorporated announced it has been placed in the Visionaries Quadrant in Gartner, Inc’s Mobile Consumer Application Platform Magic Quadrant report published Dec. 3, 2009.
"We believe our position in the Visionaries quadrant is a result of our work and commitment to seamlessly deliver expressive Web applications, content and video across multiple mobile platforms using the Adobe Flash Platform," said Ricky Liversidge, vice president, Product Marketing, Platform Business Unit at Adobe. "It's exciting to see Adobe’s heritage of providing developers the tools and consistent runtimes to create engaging content broaden to include the mobile space, and we look forward to continued growth of the mobile platform over the coming years."
Adobe has a longstanding commitment to the mobile industry and has solidified that over the years through partnerships with 19 of the top 20 handset manufacturers. Adobe also started the Open Screen Project, an initiative with close to 50 industry partners that are working to develop a consistent Flash runtime for multiple devices. Adobe and partners recently demonstrated progress of this initiative by announcing beta versions of Flash Player 10.1 for desktop and netbook operating systems and the intent to deliver Flash Player 10.1 for the Google Android, Palm webOS and Windows Mobile platforms in early 2010.
