    One of the much needed and wanted additions to the iPhone currently is the implementation of Adobe Flash Player in MobileSafari. There has been many speculations of how this will be done or if it will even make it to the iPhone. Well, reportedly, Adobe Systems’ Sr. Director of Engineering, Paul Betlem, has confirmed that Flash is indeed coming to the iPhone, but “Apple calls the shots as to when it’ll be available.”

    Jens Chr Brynildsen, a Flash expert who maintains Flash Magazine, got the confirmation at an Adobe Town Hall meeting session, and says:

    “Upon a direct question from the audience, Paul Betlem for the first time publicly confirmed that Adobe is actively developing a Flash Player for Apple’s popular phone. He said (not direct quote) ‘My team is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it’s a closed platform.’ He noted that Apple makes all the decisions, so in other words, the ball is in Apple’s yard at this time. If Apple says yes, Adobe will have the player available in a very short time.”

    Based on this, we can hope that Flash Player will come in a future firmware update from Apple, it Apple decides to implement Flash onto the iPhone.
