Confirmed: Palm Pre To Support FlashS

The Palm Pre isn't pulling any punches when it comes to attacking iPhone weaknesses. It has copy and paste, data tethering and will support Adobe's Flash.

Flash was confirmed to Newsweek's Dan Lyons weeks ago, but now they're being open about the support.

Palm has joined Adobe's Open Screen Project—an industry initiative designed to bring full web browsing and Flash-based apps to televisions, desktops and mobile devices. So, by definition, this will not only bring a complete web-browsing experience to the Palm Pre, it could also result in the development of standalone Flash apps for the webOS platform. The Flash player for smartphones is expected to be released by the end of the year. [BusinessWire]
