Adobe has since halted development of Adobe Flash 10.1 for mobile on Windows Mobile when Microsoft had announced Windows Phone 7. Now, the company has confirmed that it will be working to bring its popular browser plugin to the Windows Phone 7 platform, though the exact timing is still not disclosed nor has any devices with Windows Phone 7 shipped. A Flash product manager had posted on his blog that Windows Phone 7 will be among the platforms to get Flash support–most notably absent is Apple, which is in an embittered fight with Adobe on HTML v. Flash.
I am excited about Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2.0 and all of the opportunities that they will make available to Flash developers across multiple platforms (desktop, Android, Palm, Windows Phone 7, RIM, etc ).
To be fair, Apple’s platform, although it advocates for open standards, is one of the most tightly controlled and non-open modern smartphone platforms.
