San Francisco (CA) – Adobe and ARM are working together to enable support for Flash 10 and AIR applications on ARM processors. The announcement expands Adobe platform reach to hundreds of millions of cellphones, set-top-boxes, TVs, automotive multimedia systems, personal media players and mobile computing devices.

Adobe and ARM said that the “joint technology optimization” targets ARMv6 and ARMv7, which are used in the ARM11 and Cortex-A series of processors and is expected to be available in the second half of 2009.

The partnership originated in the Open Screen Project, an Adobe-sponsored initiative to extend the reach of the Flash Player and AIR through a consistent runtime environment. “The initiative is set to address the challenges of Web browsing on a broad range of screens, and remove the barriers to publish content and applications seamlessly across screens,” Adobe said.
