    At the Flash On The Beach (FOTB) conference in Brighton, Sr. Director of Engineering at Adobe Systems Paul Betlem, confirmed that Adobe is indeed developing a Flash Player for the iPhone. However, Apple calls the shots as to when it'll be available.

    The Town Hall meeting sessions are usually a great source of Adobe information and the one at this years Flash On The Beach conference was no exception. The session was full of nuggets for Flash users, but the most relevant piece of information for others was about Flash Player for the iPhone. 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.

    After an interview with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayan, the rumour mill got into high gear. Now we know that the Player exists within Adobe. Apple may have many reasons for not allowing Flash onto the iPhone, but if anyone has a good shot at getting their technology into the device, it would be Adobe. There were several other nuggets in this session, but we'll get back to those in our FOTB conference reports.

    Not the Flash for iPhone story again, it's just annoying now as Flash still isn't on the iPhone.
    I don't understand why can't Apple out Flash in?????????
    Even if it is battery draining, why don't they out an option so you can have the ability to turn Flash off?? Or put a better battery in the new iPhone even if the iPhone has to be a bit more thicker.

    Who cares about flash on the iphone? Don't you spend enough time watching videos of cats who look like Osama Bin Laden when you're at home?

    What would Flash even be like on the iPhone? If it's just to watch videos that aren't YouTube or QuickTime, then I really don't care if it ever comes.
