“Speaking at the Flash On The Beach (FOTB) conference in Brighton, Sr. Director of Engineering at Adobe Systems Paul Betlem was asked by an audience member for an update on Flash support for iPhone users,” Slash Lane reports for AppleInsider.
“Betlem reportedly responded by saying his team is ‘working on Flash on the iPhone’ but given that the iPhone is a closed and closely guarded system, Apple will have final say over whether the application makes its way onto the App Store,” Lane reports. “Should Apple approve the software, it would be available ‘in a very short time,’ Betlem added.”
“Earlier this year, Apple chief executive Steve Jobs panned Flash on the iPhone, arguing that its fragmented architecture offered no middle ground suitable for use on his company’s mobile products,” Lane reports. “Specifically, he said Flash Lite ‘is not capable of being used with the web’ because it doesn’t support the same types of Flash media accessible by the traditional version of Flash player on the PC. On the otherhand, the version built for PC was dubbed a resource hog that ‘performs too slow to be useful’ on the iPhone.”
