Paul Trani comments on BlackBerry PlayBook and more

As Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 was released only a little under a month ago, it is only natural for Adobe to start touring around the world showing us wonderers what the future with professional tools from Adobe could look like. Dubbed "Adobe CS5 Creativity Evolved", Adobe Certified Experts Paul Trani and Terry White take over the digitally-dependent world among other Adobe experts to demonstrate and discuss the tremendous library of functions contained within Adobe's freshly released software package.

Just a couple of days ago, on May 6, the touring evangelists from Adobe found their way to Helsinki, Finland, where I had the privilege to meet them and attend the event. All in all, it was a great experience to be in a seminar/keynote for the first time in my life. And the fact I am blogging about it now is what makes the experience that much more better, too!

To keep it short, after the event I talked to Flash Platform Evangelist Paul Trani, asking his comments on the BlackBerry PlayBook and other tablets. I must agree with Mr. Trani, it seems that everything is moving towards (mobile) devices and that we are slowly shifting away from the traditional computer setup for our daily tasks. Personally, after receiving my free BlackBerry PlayBook (more on that later), I have found certain usage cases where it is more comfortable to use my PlayBook versus my MacBook, and if at some point I can do everything on the PlayBook without the need to carry my heavy notebook computer, then I'm all in!

So watch the video, comment and stay tuned for more coverage on Adobe's CS5 Creativity Evolved event. Lots of stuff about mobile application development and Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 to follow.



I wonder just how worried Adobe is about HTML5? I know a couple of guys that do websites and they are dropping all flash content from their sites.

I believe Adobe is not worried about HTML5 at all! Quite the contrary, Creative Suite 5.5 is more HTML5-loving than ever, and Adobe seems to be embracing the standard full-force. For example, Dreamweaver comes with HTML5 templates, InDesign is able to export to HTML, et cetera. So, they're probably not worried at all ;-)



Anyone else notice the folders?? Those certainly look like good 'ol blackberry folders to me.

Yousif Abdullah

I did notice them, I was up close filming this anyway ;-) But I believe them to be just icons rather than folders. Notice that there's also what looks like a BlackBerry Maps icon, but the app name says "Wifi" if I remember correctly. So nothing fancy, but who knows? Folders would definitely be nice.



so wait..i didn't really hear anything about cs5.5. will there be color lava, eazel and nav for the playbook, like on the ipad?


I would hate to sit on my playbook too,unless i was trying to hatch it out of it's otter box case :)


This video is interesting since it appears to show a different OS version. My icon tabs are all, favorites, media, games and blackberry bridge. Paul has a new tab "Internet" between all and favorites. He also has icons that say "Phone" "Wifi" "LTE" "PM Control" "Flex Shopper-..." "Air Tests" "Server ..." and his interface is subtly different his tab minimization button has a box around the down arrow.


Thanks for sharing this information. I really like your way of expressing the opinions and sharing the information. It is good to move as chance bring new things in life, paves the way for advancement, etc. But it is well known to everyone that moving to new location with bulk of goods is not an easy task to move or shift from one place to other place because I have experienced about that and I face the problem like that. There I go to village near to my city faced that problem there
