PlayBook Shows Challenges of Bringing Flash to Tablets

WIRED writes: "Here’s a telling sign of how hard Research in Motion and Adobe are working on Flash: Just a week before the release of RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook, both companies were still working out the kinks with the tablet’s Flash support and operating system stability. received a PlayBook review unit last week, and during our testing, the tablet choked on a number of sites and games running the popular Flash platform for animations and interactive content.

Adobe’s explanation for the problem: The PlayBook is running pre-release software, including the OS, and RIM and Adobe are still working on some final “code check-ins” to smooth over some issues with the plug-in’s performance."
