Flash is Here….Almost

I’ll be damned! The good news is that Adobe’s Sr. Director of Engineering; Paul Betlem, states that Flash is coming to the iPhone. The bad news; Betlem specifically said that “Apple calls the shots as to when it’ll be available.” It could be months down the line before we see Flash on the iPhone and iPod touch. At least, that is what he said when Jens Chr Brynildsen, a Flash expert who maintains a number of resources, including Flash Magazine.

Brynildsen got this information confirmed at an Adobe Town Hall meeting session.

“Upon a direct question from the audience, Paul Betlem for the first
time publicly confirmed that Adobe is actively developing a Flash
Player for Apple’s popular phone. He said (not direct quote) ‘My team
is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it’s a closed platform.’ He
noted that Apple makes all the decisions, so in other words, the ball
is in Apple’s yard at this time. If Apple says yes, Adobe will have the
player available in a very short time.”

What’s neat is that Adobe already has Flash running on an iPhone simulator (probably the same simulator that comes with Apple’s iPhone SDK). All we are waiting on now is Apple’s Okay.
