Flash is Coming to iPhone

There are some good news about Flash in the mobile space. First Microsoft will add

iphone Flash is Coming to iPhone

Flash to Microsoft Mobile platform, even though I’m sure they’d like Silverlight to be the first class citizen there. And, after Steve Jobs said no to Flash Lite. Adobe CEO Shanatanu Narayen has announced that Adobe has begun developing a Flash-solution for the iPhone, using Apple’s official iPhone SDK.

“We believe Flash is synonymous with the Internet experience, and we are committed to bringing Flash to the iPhone,” he said. “We have evaluated (the software developer tools) and we think we can develop an iPhone Flash player ourselves.”

That’s indeed a good thing. I think it’s about time that Adobe to think about either throw the Flash Lite away and make a new Flash, or bring the Flash Lite to the par of real Flash. Mobile is a fast growing platform, if Adobe wants to be a player there, they have to put themselves together and act fast.

One thing not sure though, iPhone doesn’t allow plug-in. Everything from iPhone SDK has be to stand alone. A stand alone iPhone Flash seems won’t solve the problem for the web sites having Flash on it.

    I think your title is a little misleading. Shanatanu indicated that Adobe “thinks” they can develop an iPhone Flash Player themselves. That isn’t without overcoming some of the SDK’s roadblocks. Action is being taken, but there are no guarantees.
