Adobe's message on the Pre: Flash 10.1 coming to webOS first half of 2010
Visit the download page for Adobe Flash from an iPhone and Adobe tells you in no uncertain terms whose fault it is that the software will not play on your device. "Apple restricts use of technologies required by products like Flash Player. Until Apple eliminates these restrictions, Adobe cannot provide Flash Player for the iPhone or iPod Touch," says the writing in the box.

Now we take a look at what it says when you try to get Flash from a device using webOS.  "Adobe Flash Player  is coming to Palm's webOS in the first half of 2010." This is certainly exciting news for Pre owners and might actually be enough to sway those sitting on the fence to land on the side of the fence belonging to Palm's handset. Besides the Pre, there is also talk that the recently launched Motorola DROID will be getting Flash 10 support in the first half of next year. This looks to leave Apple out in the cold unless they start playing nice with Adobe. Remember Apple, pride comes before a fall.

Man I wouldn't give up hopes for Apple implementing Flash on the iPhone soon, because Apple will not left out in the cold you know Steve Jobs is back as CEO now. Hmm, I can't wait for the next OS update. Can't wait till Pre implement this so that I can decide to jump over to Pre or not, unless Apple quickly fix this problem.

Oh no, Adobe wants to bring the buggy flash to phones, great. I hope people love their crashed browsers and processors pegged at 100%

Once the droid gets flash support theres no doubt it will be superior to the iphone.

LOL @ ariel You can recognize the apple idiots whenever any problem with an iphone is turned into somhow and ADVANTAGE with an ipone! Sure, flash is not perfect, but it is the defacto standard, so rather than experience an occasional bug it a good thing to just ignore flash altogether! Like the apple tard who insisted the other day that microSD support was a bad thing and the ipone was better due to iys LACK of microSD support! Up is down phanboys! bad is good!

my friend just got an iphone. 3 days later he lowered his body mass index, recieved a raise at work, his bald spot grew back, and he sprouted wings and learned how to fly. nowadays he just sits around living off his powerball winnings and melting various abjects around the house with his mind. omg... hew has sooo many apps too! no flash... hahaha. stupid. kinda like trying to justify a 2.5 mm headset jack still...

You need to calm down right now. Most phones (or almost none) have flash capabilities and the Pre and the Droid still don't have it. It's still to early to start with that stuff now. This isn't like MMS where everyone had it years before, so your comparison is a little bit off.

No e.n., go back to handling up on your business...NO phone has true flash capabilities. Many have variations on flash lite, whic won't run most flash content. Sure, there's also skyfire. I use it for flash pseudo-support for some websites, but NO PHONE HAS FULL FLASH SUPPORT...yet.
