Motorola invests in Moblyng for HTML5 mobile games

Motorola on Thursday invested a mystery amount into Moblyng in an uncharacteristic push for HTML5 over Flash. The game developer is best known for its casual games using HTML5 that work across multiple platforms, including Android, iOS, webOS, and Facebook. Its cash infusion wasn't detailed but would be "accelerating the realization" of its cross-platform gaming, Motorola said.

The deal was likely to focus on Android, supported by mentions of Moblyng games such as Dungeon Quest and Android-friendly versions of Playdom web games like Mobsters.

Its endorsement is still unusual as the company has regularly preferred to use Flash when possible. It was one of the first to preload mobile Flash 10, on the Droid 2. Advertising for the Xoom has also focused very heavily on its support for Flash despite Adobe's plugin not yet being ready. Motorola isn't likely to drop Flash anytime soon but may be hoping to diversify and embrace HTML5 as a complement.

    Flash is slowly dying.

    While it may never die..... its getting used for advertisements more and more and important stuff .... less and less.

    Just a thought,
