Flash on iPhone after all?

Writing about web page http://www.macrumors.com/2008/03/18/adobe-bringing-flash-to-the-iphone/

The plot thickens. I really must get out more…

Adobe made comments today that they will be delivering a Flash client for the iPhone. According to Adobe’s Chief Executive Shantanu Narayen, Adobe has downloaded the iPhone SDK and is planning on building a Flash Player for the iPhone and distributing it via Apple’s iTunes App store.

Which is a bit confusing – wouldn’t an application created via the SDK have to run in standalone mode, rather than as a plugin to Mobile Safari? Also, now that Safari 3.1 is out and contains support for video tags and CSS animation/webfonts, I think it’s fairly clear that Apple has its own view on the future of rich web apps, but unless they’ve sorted out the over-zealous font-smoothing (especially on Windows) I’ll stick with ‘slow’ Firefox.

    One step closer to getting an iPhone then! Probably wait until the end of the year when there might be a 3G version.
