Adobe released “FlashTime” demo, a peer-to-peer video calling solution for Google Android, and any other Adobe Air equipped device. Built using Adobe Air 2.5 it offers “all features of Flash 10.1 along with multi-touch/gestures, support for bitmap matrix caching and Geolocation APIs.”
This Apple iPhone 4 FaceTime mockup, enables calls between various different camera equipped devices. The video below shows two Android devices using the software, as well as a desktop based client running on top of OS X. Currently, Android has no built in support for video calling, over the air, or even over WiFi — only using 3rd-party apps such as Fring or Qik. “FlashTime” could be a seamless competitor to these as it’s multi-platform and based on the AIR framework.
Adobe’s Mark Doherty say “there’re no plans to release this little mockup client and that indeed the FlashTime moniker is a mere placeholder.”
