    I saw this on the quickpwn website and thought it was interesting! It sure would be nice for iPhone to hve flash! I mean with the specs of the current 3gs I'm sure it could handle flash!

    Adobe has announced that they will be releasing a beta version of Flashplayer 10 for mobile operating systems some time in October. The specific operating systems Adobe mentioned were Google Android, Microsoft Windows Mobile, Nokia Symbian, and Palm WebOS. Notice something missing from this list? Yes, the iPhone was not mentioned! Adobe’s CEO Shantanu Narayen said that Adobe and Apple are still collaborating on Flash for the iPhone, with no specific launch date in sight. It doesn’t look like we will be seeing flash on the iPhone any time soon, but at least it will still be coming to other big mobile operating systems.

    Flash coming to mobile operating systems is a really big thing not only for us but also for application developers. Developers will be able to easily make apps that work with other mobile operating systems too.* Video streaming, flash games, and all normal flash content will be viewable on our mobile phones. I can’t wait till flashplayer 10 is out, I’ve seen way too many websites that don’t work on my mobile browser because of flash!

    There have been hundreds of threads. The iPhone can't handle flash. It will never happen for one hundred different reasons. Give up the fight.

    The iPhone can handle flash. The problem is that since flash is a mini-operating system in itself, it could pose a threat to pay apps in the app store. Especially the game ones.

    I think the 3Gs could handle flash...maybe.

    Then again my 2.93GHz MBP has some problems watching YouTube videos in HD.....
