Nokia has designed an application in Flashlite for the tracking of disease using mobile devices here.
- Important feature of the software’s ability is data collection. Rapid and precise collection of information, which is then sent instantly to a central server, speeds up what is currently a time-consuming paper-based activity.
- Actual aggregation of the data which helps to build a picture of what’s happening and where.
- Getting the information back to local practitioners, as it then enables them to take appropriate action. What marks HealthRadar out further is the ability to consume the data either on a mobile device or a PC, so the gathered data is useful to people in the field and those based in medical centres.
The software also features a Dashboard which enables users to quickly access key information including a daily update, a GeoHealth Map which highlights disease intensity alongside local health centres, the ability to compare current patterns against historic ones and statistical graphs.
Today, Adobe Unveiled First Full Flash Player For Mobile Devices And PCs. Close to 50 Open Screen Project Participants Support New Browser Runtime for Multiple Platforms.
Adobe unveiled Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 software for smartphones, smartbooks, netbooks, PCs and other Internet-connected devices, allowing content created using the Adobe Flash Platform to reach users wherever they are. A public developer beta of the browser-based runtime is expected to be available for Windows® Mobile, Palm® webOS and desktop operating systems including Windows, Macintosh and Linux later this year. Public betas for Google® Android™ and Symbian® OS are expected to be available in early 2010. In addition, Adobe and RIM announced a joint collaboration to bring Flash Player to Blackberry® smartphones, and Google joined close to 50 other industry players in the Open Screen Project initiative.

There had been varied rumors had been flying around for a few days before this FOTB’09 that that we would be able to check some sneak peaks at this year’s Adobe keynote, and that’s exactly what happened. Richard Galvan and Mark Anders, “Senior” Principle Scientist at Adobe, were back again this year with an update on the Flash platform and a sneak peek on Flash CS5 and the new Flash Mobile features. YES. IT IS FLASH CS5
Marc Anders started off by going over the current platform situation and Flash Player 10 installs continue to impress. New figures due out shortly will put the coverage at over 90%. Mark used some community demos to run through features in the Flash Player 10 and AIR runtimes. (Click any of the images to see the high-rez version)
Richard Galvan gave us our first sneak peak of “Viper” Flash Professional CS5. The big news for developers is that Flash authoring finally gets integration with FlashBuilder. If you’re using Flash CS5, a new FlashBuilder project can be created from Flash CS5 through a new export dialogue.

Though late arrival, never thought that this would be so pretty cool. Now Flash has come alive in it’s first Android based device, the Hero from Open Screen partner HTC!!!!!
It should be a direct sequel to the G1, and has all the features like multi-touch HVGA screen, accelerometer support, GPS, Compass, WIFi, 5 MP camera, Android Webkit Browser, and now with having Adobe Flash makes for even more very rich mobile web user experience.
Check out the device here!
Adobe has a good a really good press release which explains in detail. They also have made a good video where the Adobe Platform team explains some of the features of the Flash implementation on the HTC Hero device. According to Mark’s blogpost, it’s possible to view up to 85% of online video through the Flash Player, supports latest Flash Lite 3.1 supports streaming audio capabilities, as well as support for around 80% of Flash content on the web today through the device’s web browser. On this device, double clicking Flash content (games, ads, etc) brings it fullscreen mode, which seems to work very much intuitively: Demo of Flash on the HTC Hero (an Android device).
What version of Flash is this? Well, right now it’s Flash Lite 3.1 according to Adobe. However, there have been prior public announcements that Flash 10 is coming to Android (by as soon as end of this year), as well as other mention of other SmartPhone platforms like webOS, Windows Mobile, & Symbian for starters down the lane. Mark says that the HTC Hero has Adobe Distributable Player. My lateral thought would be that, they (HTC) may upgrade the device at some point later (whether that means Flash Lite 3.x or Flash Player 10 can be anyone’s guess). Here are few words from Adobe: Serge Jespers, Mark Doherty. Here are some of the interesting comments from the Peter Elst & Dale Rankine of flashlite community. With now over one billion devices running Flash, and Android represents a nice (open) platform in which Flash to grow, develop and play. This new HTC Hero device represents the true mobile (web) experiences possible and I think we’ll see much more devices in the future.
Ricky Liversidge, Vice-president, Worldwide field marketing, Adobe says here, “India is one of our two growth markets and we are increasing our headcount and marketing budgets here. We are also looking at furthering innovation, like our tie-up for training in design, web, mobile and interactive media”. But we, Adobe Devigner (Developer+Designer) community in India never got any answers to our posts here regarding the Adobe MAX events not being held in India in the year 2008-2009. Let’s hope it will happen too soon in India.
Thought few years ago that Adobe reaching 20 million units shipped would be a milestone and catching up one billion units in numbers is great to reach, but reaching half of its size really does matter. Flash Lite, Adobe’s award-winning Flash Player runtime specifically designed for mobile devices, has seen over 150 percent growth over the last year and is now delivered on mobile devices from all major handset manufacturers worldwide. including Nokia, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and many others.
