New Mobile Flash Player Coming Without iPhone Support

Adobe's beta version of the Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 Distributable Player for mobile devices may be available for the Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile, but not Apple's iPhone. The new version of the Flash player will give developers a way to distribute their Flash-based applications to users via the Internet.

While the new version of the Flash player for mobile devices gives application and content developers a new way to distribute their products, they will still be cut off from the iPhone and iPod touch because Adobe hasn't been able to produce a version of the player that meets Apple's requirements.

Adobe is, however, working to bring Flash to the iPhone with a little help from Apple. "It's a hard technical challenge, and that's part of the reason Apple and Adobe are collaborating. The ball is in our court. The onus is on us to deliver," said Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen.

Neither company has said when to expect Flash to make it onto the iPhone and iPod touch, or if it ever will. Since Apple sees Flash Lite as too stripped down and limited to be usable on the Web, it's unlikely that it will ever appear on Apple's handheld devices.

I guess that buys us some time. However, sooner or later we will have to fight (and defeat) the Flash Dragon.
