No Flash Player for iPhone?
Writing about web page http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/08/03/05/steve_jobs_pans_flash_on_the_iphone.html
It looks like the iPhone won’t be seeing any Adobe Flash action anytime soon if Steve Jobs’ recent words are anything to go by – I’m not expecting to see any support in the iPhone SDK announcement. Battery life and performance are valid concerns of course, but there many ARM devices available that offer FP9 already (many with lower core specs than the iPhone), and I think there are other factors at work here – one reason might be that because Flex delivers rich applications, enabling Flash Player would essentially enable ‘unsigned’ RIAs to run via the Player. I can’t imagine applications designed for the web scaling well on an iPhone anyway, but you could imagine Flex apps designed for the iPhone screen that offered a similar experience to the native UI. Shoring up Quicktime, HTML5 (when it finally gets here) and WHATWG all probably play a part too, but I think for iPhone users it’s a shame Flash isn’t there – advertising aside there are many great games, application and video sites iPhone users can’t access.
