Macromedia Flash Coming Soon to a Palm Near You

Macromedia is working hard to port its Flash 5 player to every possible platform, including the Palm OS. Flash is a multimedia tool and file format rapidly becoming an Internet standard for its wide availability and small file size.

According to PCWorld, "players for Symbian devices, Palms, and Web phones are in the works." This was announced at the Flashforward 2000 user conference in San Francisco this week.

Flash is already available for Windows CE. "Regular Flash .swf files play on this [Windows CE] handheld device," said Kevin Lynch, Macromedia's chief technology officer, in a demonstration of the Flash player running on a Cassiopeia.
