Like flash floods, Flash phones will soon be overtaking the market in a rapid fashion as more and more developers realize Flash gives them the ability to so much more than other programming environments. TechCrunch has an overview of a new company in this space called TringMe. Currently the Indian-based organization is looking to license its technology to VoIP providers. There is a demo on the Tringme website which is not so impressive at the moment but it shows what a Flash phone could be.
Why does a Flash phone make sense? Well it allows the phone to run on multiple platforms without the need to develop to each environment. In addition it allows one to utilize IP communications without having to download software. In so many organizations, security procedures do not allow downloads of software but running Flash programs is fine.
One last benefit of not downloading software is there is just so much junk on people’s computers that they slow down to intolerable levels after a while. I blame the “antis,” you know, anti-spam, anti-spyware, anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-Trojans, anti-phishing, anti-adware, etc.
