Just yesterday we were wondering when Adobe Flash would be launching with Windows Phone 7, especially with Adobe suddenly listing the fledgling OS on their site.
Today, we get word from Michael Chaize, a Flash Platform evangelist based in Paris, that Flash and AIR (allows Flash to run in non-browser situations), will be released on WP7 "within months" of release, possibly as little as six-months post-release.
We think this would make sense for Microsoft as they would probably package it an maintenance release for the OS, pushed out to everyone with hopefully other things like copy-paste and socket support.
Of course this is Adobe, so "within months" from them is almost equivalent to 'Valve-time'.
