Bellevue, WA – March 25, 2009 – BSQUARE Corporation (Nasdaq: BSQR), the leading software solutions provider to the global embedded device community, today announced it will port Adobe’s Flash technology onto Google’s Android platform for a global Tier 1 carrier.

Adobe is a leader in rich internet and user interface technology for mobile devices. Flash technology ships on over 800 million devices worldwide while over one million designers and developers use Adobe Flash to build video and rich media applications.

Industry analyst firm Strategy Analytics predicts that Android, the newest mobile operating system, will take a 12 percent market share of global smartphone shipments by 2012. Android also is expected to gain traction on other types of smart devices used in a range of industries.

“Integrating Adobe Flash technology with the functionality of Google’s Android platform will afford consumers the rich content and unprecedented applications they demand and is key to achieving success for our OEM and ODM customers,” said BSQUARE’s CEO Brian Crowley. “We believe that our value-added products and services can improve the Android experience for users and help our customers get their devices to market faster.”

In the last 12 months since its acquisition of NEC America’s Adobe® Flash® Technology Consulting and Distribution business, BSQUARE has worked on over 40 different customer devices including handsets, set top boxes, digital signage, consumer devices and netbooks. BSQUARE has built an Android competency in its professional engineering services group through several customer engagements.
