Bluestreak Technology today announced its MachBlue platform will soon support Java and Android devices, meaning more device manufacturers will have the option to create phones with Adobe Flash support.
MachBlue has been created for companies to build Flash support into their smartphones or other devices, not to allow end-users to add this feature on their own. It is an add-on for the many operating systems that don’t currently come with Flash support.
More about MachBlue
In addition to upcoming support for Java and Android, Bluestreak already supports Blackberry, Brew, Linux, Symbian, and Windows Mobile; though the company did not mention if the WM support will extend to Windows Phone 7.
Bluestreak is building the new MachBlue, dubbed the Java 2.0 edition, using the Java MIDP 2.0 specification, making it modular enough to support instillation across J2ME, J2SE, RIM, and Android-powered devices. It will be compliant with ActionScript 2.0 and Flash 6.0, and Bluestreak claims it will run faster, have improved runtime memory management, and offer more consistent performance than previous versions. MachBlue will ship with MachBlue Studio, an application development kit.
“Bluestreak Technology’s support for new Java and Android devices benefits mobile operators, content companies, and developers who want to write visually appealing Flash powered applications once and then deploy them across the majority of mobile devices currently in market,” claimed Julien Blin, JBB Research Principal Analyst and Bluestreak CEO.
Bluestreak claims that millions of consumers access MachBlue-powered applications. Time Warner Cable is a Bluestreak client, utilizing MachBlue to deliver Flash-based interactive television services to its customers.
