Flash doesn’t work on mobile devices, yet…but soon?

In designing for the web, it used to be that it didn’t matter what the mobile user was going to see, because the demographics were so small, but these days people are doing more browsing from their smart phones, and while that works just fine for a lot of the, and there are no adjustments that have to be made for the iPhone, there is still one thing that doesn’t work, and that is Flash.

But according to The Standard, at least one or two smart phones may soon get it. The Android and HTC Hero. But, Adobe says it is really hard to do one for the iPhone. It’s shame, really. You would think that Apple would want a feature like that on the iPhone, but then they weren’t too happy with desktop publishing when it first came out either, although without it, the Mac would never have gotten big.
