    The Touch and iPhone don't support Flash at this time.

    I think it is safe to say that they are not interested. They seem to be pushing HTML5. They need to get everyone on the bandwagon quickly. I'm tired of playing with legos.

    While HTML5 would be great, the fact is that most sites are still running on Flash, so it would be great to have. Will the iPhone or iPad get it anytime soon? I doubt it.

    Flash has been one of the biggest things that people have been wanting on the iPhone since day one. I remember when copy and paste was a huge issue. Apple listens to our wants and needs but they also are gonna be selfish when it comes to things. Flash player is a gaming and video tool which Apple has a place to go for that... App store and iTunes. So I seriously doubt they will give us flash player when they can continue to charge us for what we could have free with flash...

    is there any update on the FLASH? i would really want to have flash.
    I asked the customer service from Apple, when I had issue on my 3GS, because Adobe is competition most likely not but Ive been reading articles that Flash will come out soon.

    So any new updates will be great.

    Flash isn't coming. Resign yourself to that. HTML5 otoh is coming, and in a big way. Flash is a bit of a pig, and although Adobe hit a home run with Acrobat, Flash is going to go the way of Real Player in the coming years. Just one man's opinion.

    I don't see flash ever coming to the iPhone. Plugins are slowly dying on desktop platforms so they will die much faster on mobile platforms. HTML5 is the new spec and it makes so much more sense for mobile devices because it uses less CPU thereforee longer battery life.

    Yep! I'm glad someone is reading my posts haha. But yeah we really need to stop beating a dead horse like KrakaJap said. Apple is taking a pretty firm stance against Flash so I think its safe to say stop thinking about it.

    However there is a browser in the App Store called Skyfire, which will give you some access to Flash content on websites.
