Report: Flash, Java Features Look Unlikely for iPhone by Holidays

With only a few weeks left before the holidays, iPhone users aren't likely to see Adobe Systems and Sun Systems get full Flash and Java features working for Apple's handheld by Christmas.

Despite expressed desires from both companies to back the iPhone for almost a year, neither Adobe's full Flash Player nor Sun's Java Virtual Machine currently run on the iPhone or iPod touch and Infoworld noted that little to no progress is being made, in spite of consistent claims that work is being done to port the platforms to the hardware.

In comparison, the Flash Flash Lite software does not run on the Symbian OS used on many handsets, an Android version is in the works and a version is currently being developed for the forthcoming Windows Mobile operating system, which also drives a fair number of handhelds/smartphones.

The Java VM or its mobile cousin J2ME run on the Android, Symbian, and Windows Mobile OSes.

How the f is this a story how two features not announced and publicly denounced by Apple not making it by some arbitrary holiday period as if what exactly???. As if iPhone buyers will be revolting about the lack of Java and Flash by the hoildays, can the author explain the reasoning behind this posting/story???
