    This will be awesome. the Windows Phone 7 beats Apple's aesthetically built phones any day. Go Microsoft

    Flash isn't, by any stretch of the imagination, the only thing Adobe does.

    I'm inclined to think that, if this happened, this was probably more centered around Adobe Air, which is a platform to develop on. Google it.

    It seems obvious to me that this is about apps on Windows Phone 7 being almost exclusively written in ActionScript/Flash or Air, and run natively. With that kind of integration, Flash would become a lot less buggy, but Air seems like the more obvious choice.

    Sounds good to me, the Windows Phone 7 really does look awesome, and the more heavy competition Apple gets the better.

    It's weird, I've heard nothing about Adobe Air until I got Pandora's desktop gadget, which made me install it. What is the difference between that and Flash?
