Adobe publicly said that Flash would ship on a smartphone in early 2009, then the second half of 2009, then the first half of 2010, and now they say the second half of 2010. We think it will eventually ship, but we’re glad we didn’t hold our breath. Who knows how it will perform?

I have to admit… he is right. Flash is hella slow on any phone I’ve actually seen it running on, and the elusive Flash 10 beta (or whatever) has yet to be seen.
If you ask me, this was a missed opportunity for Microsoft. Silverlight mobile should have swooped in 2 years ago and saved the day. Oh well.
