Windows Phone Mango to come as 7.1, IE9 served Flash-less
Even more interesting however is a look at the new version of Internet Explorer 9 for cell phones running Redmond’s platform. The newly introduced changes include GPU acceleration and improved rendering, but as deep as Microsoft engineers went for the update, the browser would still come with no support for Flash videos or embedded HTML5 clips.
If you’ve ever wondered where it’s all going in the future, principal program manager for the mobile IE, Joe Marini has the answer for you in an interview for TechRadar: "If you play with the preview of IE10 on the desktop you can get a sense of where IE10 on Windows Phone is going to go." The event starts in three hours, or 10:00am EST or 7:00am PST, so stay tuned.

Somehow, I don't think Android has much to worry about from the folks at Redmond. Even if they buy Nokia.

I'm seriously disappointed there will be no flash in this update. Seriously? Android will continue to crush wp7 without the flash. Now, I am thinking I made the wrong decision choosing a wp7.
