Adobe still in denial about Flash and Apple

Adobe logoAdobe CEO Shantanu Narayen claims there will be 130 million smartphone devices running Flash by the end of 2011. Maybe - but what about performance and power drain?

Indeed, as Walt Mossberg of All Things D told Narayen during a recent interview at the D9 conference, he has "yet to test a single one where Flash works really well."

Adobe still in denial about Flash and AppleNarayen, however, seemed completely unperturbed by Mossberg's skepticism, emphasizing Adobe and Apple were "absolutely" done arguing about the lack of Flash on iOS devices.

The outspoken CEO went on to compare himself to a "kid in a candy shop," as he is currently working closely with companies designing non-iPad tablets, which, yes, are capable of running Flash with reckless abandon.

"There is more power on these devices now than when we delivered Photoshop on a PC several years ago," he said.

"We are clearly betting on these devices not just being consumption devices but also productivity devices for our community... There will be another 20 tablets that will come by the end of the year that will push the industry in different directions."

Narayen emphasized he was putting his money on Android tablets rather than the iPad, predicting Google's popular mobile operating system would eventually outpace Apple's iOS. /p>

"What you saw with smartphones hitting an inflection point with Android, you'll see it again with tablets. 

I think the community is vibrant [and] I'm really excited," he added.
