Why the iPad Will Redefine Our View of RIAs

When Apple announced the iPad I was excited and let down at the same time. Finally they released the mythical Apple Tablet. It took me a few days to look past the fact that on the outside the iPad appeared to be a giant iPhone/iPod Touch. I consider the iPad a Trojan horse in the computer world. Apple is ushering in the age of software over technology, and it is easy to see how the Web, Widgets, and RIAs (Rich Internet Applications) have inspired its apps. With Apple’s refusal to include the Flash Player as a part of its web browsing experience a rift has grown in the Flash community. I have always been a big believer that I am a developer over a Flash Developer and I see the iPad as a new platform to grow into. I wrote a post that outlined a few of my thoughts on why the iPad will change the way we view RIAs and recently it was published in Flash & Flex Developer’s Magazine. It is my pleasure to share it with you here.

Also, if you do not get a free copy of Flash & Flex Developer’s Magazine I suggest you sign up for it. It is free and there are lots of good articles in it so how can you go wrong?
