Microsoft didn't dance around the subject at their Windows Phone 7 Series presentation at Mobile World Congress. When asked if WP7S would have Flash, Steve Ballmer promptly replied that WP7S didn't yet have it, Microsoft wasn't against the idea.
Shortly thereafter, Adobe announced it no longer was pursuing development of Flash 10.1 for Windows Mobile 6.5 and would instead concentrate on working on Flash for WP7S. Makes sense.
This commitment to bring Flash to the Windows Phone 7 Series OS was reaffirmed recently on the blog of one Mike Chambers, Adobe's Principal Product Manager for developer relations for Flash. Writes Chambers:
"One thing I wanted to clarify as it may have been lost in some of the other news is that Adobe and Microsoft are working together to bring Flash Player 10.1 to Internet Explorer Mobile on Windows Phone 7 Series. I don't have an eta or other specifics right now, but it is something that both Adobe and Microsoft are working closely together on."
It appears Adobe wasted no time at jumping at the opportunity, and now we ask, will Flash 10.1 be in place by the anticipated Holiday 2010 launch of WP7S? And if not, will it be missed?
