Bedminster, NJ and San Jose, CA -- Adobe Systems Incorporated announced a strategic alliance with Verizon Wireless to start a mobile ecosystem built around Flash technology that will allow developers to create new interactive mobile content experiences for Verizon Wireless customers. Through this agreement, Verizon Wireless is expected to become the first wireless operator in North America to introduce Flash-enabled handsets that use the technology to deliver a customized user experience. Developers will be able to create and offer new rich content, applications and data services based on Flash and targeted at these handsets.
The powerful combination of Verizon Wireless and Adobe will enable the mobile developer community and content providers to target new handsets from the leading wireless operator, utilizing the design and development environments of choice for millions of designers and developers around the world -- Adobe Creative Suite and Macromedia Studio from Adobe. Using these industry standard creative tools, the development community can express their creativity and bring engaging mobile experiences to Verizon Wireless subscribers.
The companies did not release information regarding potential launch dates nor financial arrangements.
