Adobe's Flash gets support from Nokia, Opera
London: While Apple, the American manufacturer of consumer electronics, has pulled out its support for Adobe Systems' Flash, Nokia and Opera have assured their support for the software in its bitter row with Apple.

Adobe's Flash multimedia software was hit by Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs' comment last month, saying that the software is unreliable and ill-suited for mobile devices. Contrary to Jobs, Jon von Tetzchner, Co-Founder of Opera said that Adobe's Flash is the only proprietary part of the Web that the browser supports.

Similarly, Alberto Torres, Chief of Nokia's Solutions Business Unit, told that Adobe's Flash multimedia software is supported by Nokia as well.

While Apple has not allowed Flash on its iPhone and iPad, there are a lot of videos and games found on many Internet sites, which are Flash-based. The hostility between Apple and Adobe has been brewing for months, with both of them criticizing each other.
