Nokia launches Open Screen Project Fund
Nokia and Adobe today announced over 35 funded multi-screen applications as part of the joint Open Screen Project Fund at at Adobe MAX, Adobe’s worldwide developer conference.
Both companies also introduced new Nokia Web Runtime (WRT) extensions for Adobe® Dreamweaver CS4 software making the creation of mobile WRT widgets for supported Nokia devices more simple.
Announced in February 2009, the Open Screen Project Fund is a USD 10 million joint market development fund designed to accelerate the creation of multi-screen applications, content and services that leverage existing Adobe Flash Platform technologies and the announced Adobe Flash Player 10.1 runtime for smartphones, netbooks, smartbooks and PCs.
Companies were been encouraged to submit their ideas, and have responded by submitting more than 750 to date from over 60 countries.
The Open Screen Project Fund is actively accepting new submissions until the end of 2010. During the Adobe MAX conference, Adobe and Nokia will be demonstrating several of these applications.
