Adobe aims to grow Flash, Reader on mobiles

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:52 pm

Design software maker Adobe Systems Inc.expects to see increasing revenues from the sale of its flagship products for use on mobile phones, its president and chief operating officer said on Thursday.

“We expect mobile to increasingly contribute to the company,” Shantanu Narayen told Reuters in an interview in Finland where he visited clients such as Nokia .

Adobe, known for its Acrobat document sharing and, after its Macromedia acquisition last year, for Flash animation software, expects to increase penetration of its products in mobile phones through sales to handset makers and telecoms operators, he said.

“We certainly like to believe that as rich media is being consumed more on these devices … that both Flash and Reader become essential part of these devices … We are vigilant to make it happen,” Narayen said.

Flash and Reader software are currently available mostly on top-end phones, but Narayen said the company was aiming also to have it in the cheaper products.
