Windows Phone 7 To Get Flash 10.1
Apple and Google may have rejected Adobe Flash technology but Microsoft seems to have more faith in the technology; the software giant is including Flash 10.1 within its own Windows Phone 7 software.
However that may not be the end of the story. Some commentators think that both Apple may come to regret the decision not to incorporate Flash after Adobe released a press release. The release published by knowyourmobile.com says: “Flash Player 10.1 is available on Android and Google TV today.”
It went on: “The following platforms – BlackBerry, HP webOS 2.0, future versions on Windows Phone, LiMo, MeeGo and Symbian – would be getting the Flash Player 10.1 treatment as well.” So, Android seems to be onboard now.
In related news, it seems Dell is moving rapidly towards being known as a mobile phone manufacturer as well as a PC maker.
The company has just announced that its latest handset – the Dell Venue – is now available to pre-order from Expansys.
Until now, much of the information about this new device was under wraps although it was known to be powered by Windows Phone 7.
Other specifications include a Qualcomm 8250 SnapDragon 1Ghz processor, an 800 x 400 4.1 inch capacitive screen and a 5 megapixel camera with digital zoom.
It also features geo-tagging and touch-focus, 1GB of internal memory, expandable by microSDHC card, AGPS, accelerometer, digital compass and a proximity sensor. The Dell Venue is available SIM-free at £500.
