Adobe and Nokia set up $10 million development fund

Open Screen Project helps developers create Flash-based applications and services

Adobe and Nokia have set up a $10 million Open Screen Project fund that will help developers create Flash-based applications and services for mobile phones, computers and other consumer electronics devices.

The new fund is part of the Open Screen Project that was revealed in May last year with the aim of providing a consistent browsing experience on different platforms. Palm is the latest to join the Project that already has more than twenty partners on board.

“We are excited about the Open Screen Project Fund and the possibilities it offers to designers and developers worldwide,” said David Wadhwani, general manager and vice president, Platform Business Unit at Adobe. “With close to 40 percent of all new mobile devices shipped with Flash Lite in 2008, the fund will enable more developers to bring their rich content and services to a large number of mobile users.”

Developers can submit concepts for applications focusing on entertainment, social networking, news and information, productivity and gaming. For more information, visit the official website of the Project.
