PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While most of us here on the OSNews team are proponents of HTML5, we're all fully aware that Flash serves an important role on the web today, and will most likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Flash has a rather spotty record when it comes to performance, and so far, hasn't been able to run well on mobile devices. It seems this is about to change, as an Adobe evangelist has showed off Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2 (Froyo) running on the Nexus One. And eerlijk is eerlijk, it looks pretty darn impressive, especially considering how far they've come.

Again, what is it with your fixation on the past?

I am not fixated on the past I am fixated on the present. As of this moment there is no Flash on phones. It hasn't been released. It has been demoed and some very recent high profile demos showed severe bugs and some video subsequently showed those bugs gone. Videos are not a reliable guide to unreleased products (remember Courier). Lets wait until its released and see what Flash mobile actually does.

In the meantime Apple is saying no to an unreleased and untested product from the same company that has produced extremely buggy and inefficient versions of software from the same software family.

Why should they change their position until the new wonder Flash mobile is released and tested in the real world?

More importantly why should they say yes to unreleased Flash as long as saying no does not negatively impinge on their competitive position in the market place and adversely affect sales?
