Adobe MAX, Keynote Highlights.

The first keynote at MAX focused on the future of content development and how it will be delivered. The talk was divided into 4 sections, multi screen, publishing, enterprise, and gaming. Below are some quick notes jotted down on my iPhone during the two hour kick off.

Connecting to the Internet via mobile will eclipse the PC by 2013.

Mobile bandwidth on 4G, WiMax and LTE will be greater than 50mbt per second surpassing traditional cable modem and WiFi speeds.

By the end of 2010, Flash will be deployed on over 1 million mobile devices.

Adobe has a new beta software tool named Edge. The demo looked like Dreamweaver with an After Effects timeline.

Edge outputs CSS3, HTML 5, and Java Script to control animation transitions, and content delivery. (it looked pretty bad ass)

Flash video use has grown by 130% year over year for the last 3.

The Flash developer base has grown by 50% in the last year.

70% of all games on the web are developed in Flash.

Adobe now has over 400 million installs of Air on the desktop.

Blackberry “Playbook’s” Ui is built on Air. It looks pretty Amazing.
