    It seems every platform but iOS is targetted :

    I guess now everyone but Apple gets "the Full Web Experience".

    iOS wasn't targeted because apple is prohibiting flash on the iPhone with some misguided idea that it will kill the battery.

    Funny thing is apple said the same thing about multitasking, and look what they just added. For the record my Nexus with full multitasking gets the same battery life.

    I'm waiting for android 2.2 hit be installed on my Nexus so I can install flash :D

    Well, I guess this is it, really.

    If the industry rave about Flash 10.1 performance especially on the Androids, Apple will find it hard to justify its exclusion. Of course, the other side of the penny is that if Flash is in anyway iffy, Adobe will have to eat crow from Apple about unreliable customer deliverance.

    Once Froyo 2.2 gets pushed out to more Android devices, this match up should get really interesting, really quick.

    Are you for or against the implementation of Flash on mobile devices? As a former Flash developer since the introduction of Flash, I am quite disappointed in the product, and see it as a failure to mature.
