This quote from TechCrunch is spot on:
Adobe can prove Appleâ€™s decision to bar Flash from running on some of the worldâ€™s most popular and capable smartphones and the iPad wrong, but only by doing what it is doing now: by actually shipping Flash for Mobile and showing that it knows how to make it an integral part of the mobile experience, without slowing things down.
Gig Om is a lot less positive with it’s headline:
Adobe Delivers Flash Player 10.1 But Most People Canâ€™t UseÂ It
Ouch! Kevin Tofel continues:
The key word in Adobeâ€™s press release today being â€œexpected,â€ which appears three times. Platforms other than Android areÂ expected toÂ integrateÂ and work with Flash Player. All of the latest Android handsets areÂ expected to see Froyo, which is required for Flash Player 10.1. The production version of Flash isÂ expected to be available as a final production release for Froyo devices. Translation: Adobe hasnâ€™t delivered anything to most handsets today and the fate of Flash Player is increasingly out of Adobeâ€™s hands.
