The goal of the Open Screen Project, which is lead by Adobe, is to “enable consumers to engage with rich internet experiences seamlessly across any device, anywhere.” Two companies have just recently announced that they will join Adobe in the Open Screen Project. These two companies are Mountain View-based search engine giant Google and RIM (Research In Motion), the company behind the Blackberry mobile device.

Starting with Google, it must be said that the aforementioned company is no stranger to Adobe. Some of Google’s best known offerings require close integration with Adobe’s technology: popular video sharing site YouTube, the speedy Chrome web browser, and last but not least, Google web search. It goes without saying that the guys over at Google are pretty excited about joining the Open Screen Project.


“We’re excited to be joining Adobe's Open Screen Project, an initiative established a year and a half ago to help developers more easily design content for the web across multiple screens using the Flash Platform. We've always believed that open platforms lead to greater innovation on the web and we see participating in the Open Screen Project as another step in that direction. We're excited to continue working with the teams at Adobe on pushing the web forward and to see where the next generation of web development will take us,” commented Senior Vice President of Engineering with Google, Bill Coughran.

Research In Motion, after announcing the release of Blackberry Desktop for Mac, has today officially confirmed the fact that it is working with Adobe with the goal of bringing Adobe Flash Player support to its smartphone devices. For that reason RIM joined the Open Screen Project.

“As an industry leader for innovative smartphones and wireless solutions, RIM delivers superior mobile user experiences to customers around the world. It’s a natural fit for both companies to work together to bring Flash technology based video and web content to BlackBerry smartphone users,” said David Wadhwani, general manager and vice president, Flash Platform Business Unit at Adobe.
