Flash launches mobile Web-browsing technology

Flash claims no one has yet nailed mobile web-browsing.

Flash Networks announced Open Mobile Browsing. Flash claims that OMB provides mobile internet browsing that resembles the fixed-line desktop web experience.

Flash Networks feels that, despite huge demand for mobile access to the internet, no-one has yet fully nailed the quality of experience that users demand from mobile web-browsing. Gadgets such as the Apple iPhone and Datawind PocketSurfer2 cannot compete with a desktop or laptop computer in this regard.

According to Flash, Open Mobile Browsing combines download acceleration and multimedia web adaptation to offer faster browsing and downloads on the move. Flash says OMB intuitively renders internet content for the smaller screen. It also provides video streaming shaping, so that users can enjoy multimedia applications on mobile devices.

Flash Networks CEO Liam Galin said: "Flash Networks' Open Mobile Browsing Solution boosts data revenues and ARPU [average revenue per user] by combining quick browsing and downloads with the best of breed web and video adaptation.

"Flash Networks' latest QoE [quality-of-experience] service running on the Harmony modular platform enables the mobile internet to become a popular destination for users and a source of competitive advantage, revenues and customer loyalty for operators."

According to Flash Networks, Open Mobile Browsing speeds up browsing and downloads by applying optimization based on the specific download requirements, the capabilities of the device involved and the network conditions.

The elements on each web page are adapted to the smaller screen, says Flash Networks, so more important aspects should get a greater focus.

Internet video streams are transcoded to mobile formats, and video framerates are tweaked according to the available bandwidth, latency, and noise conditions. Flash Networks claims that because of this, even on a mobile phone, video quality should be good, the picture sharp and the clip smooth.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
