Flash may come to the iPhone soon…

Adobe has reportedly confirmed to Flash Magazine that Flash is coming to the iPhone. Senior Director of Engineering Perter Betlem has said that it would be coming to the phone, but he said that it would be Apple that would “calls the shots as to when it’ll be available”.

"My team is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it’s a closed platform,” he said.

In mid-June, Adobe’s CEO has said the company had already gotten Flash running on a iPhone emulator, but did not mention which emulator but there is speculation it is the one included in the iPhone software development kit. Flash is not supported by many phones, since mobile processors have not been fast enough to handle the sites. Though there is a mobile version of Flash, dubbed the Flash Lite, it is still too much for the phone to handle.
