There are a ton of blog posts about the “news” that Flash on the iPhone is coming soon. I’ve been getting a lot of Twitters and emails about whether or not I can confirm or deny and I wasn’t going to post anything but I do want to give my thoughts as an Evangelist and since JD provided some insight, I want to as well.
I have no idea if the rumor is true or not. I’ve met Andru through some of his work with MindCamp here in Seattle and I know they broke the 1.1.3 Jailbreak story so he has some cred in the tech community. But the fact that this news has 1880 digs at the time of this writing shows that there is a TON of interest in Flash on the iPhone. I’m not sure anything with Flash has had that many diggs on Digg before, so it’s really cool.
But this isn’t Adobe’s device. I assume someone at the high levels of Adobe knows what the status is but I don’t and everyone I talk to doesn’t. That’s because only Apple really knows anything about it. If you want Flash on the iPhone I’d keep bugging Apple. I’m really stoked about what’s going to come with the iPhone SDK and believe me, I want Flash on it just as much if not more than most of you. But no one aside from Steve Jobs has any idea if/when it’s coming.
