no. no flash coming at least not for a long time. it was only a big deal for people that flame the iPhone and try to point out every little unnecessary thing it doesn't have

Flash would be great because there are a lot of websites with flash that we cannot view on the iPhone, but I think people just gave up hoping for it. It is always rumored before Keynotes but as soon as Steve is done talking the rumors die. Would be nice though.

I'm not sure how flash is unnecessary. Many websites are unviewable without it. My iPhone has been my favorite item for almost a year and now with 2.0 it's just that much better but I would like flash.

I've had one since almost the beginning. The BMW website is one that jumps immediately to mind, but there are a host of them I'm on fairly frequently that use it. Not enough to diminish the iPhone's value for me, but certainly enough to make me say, "Doh!" from time to time.

Adobe does have Flash running on the iPhone - in an emulator. However, whether or not they're in any talks with Apple is unknown to the public.

you must not check menus online for new restaurants too often. many restaurants use flash sites and cannot be viewed via iPhone.

Yeah I don't quite understand your statement. It's sort of the major draw of the iPhone: the real internet in your pocket. That means Flash.

i was referring to him saying "you must not go to resturant web sites..ect" and i was saying no i don't and im sure most people don't either. because he sounded surprised that i don't use my iPhones internet to look up resturants while im out wasting gas looking for resturants. i usually know where im gonna go before i leave the house

Actually I have had my iPhone also since it first came out and I can't tell you the number of sights I come across where you need flash, it's frustrating at times.

When I get frustrated by the lack of flash, I often think about how many other smartphones can do embedded flash in a webpage.... how many are there? Not many. Of those that can, how enjoyable is that experience?

Flash is a medium that, right now, seems to be juuuust beyond current mobile capabilities. Throw in the user-interface "uniqueness" of the iPhone, and it's a double-headed challenge.
