I think Mossberg is wrong here, and I doubt he really heard this from someone in the know at Apple.

After speaking with Walt I would say he knows what he is talking about.

I've communicated with him several times as well. I find it hard to believe he would get something like this wrong, but it does happen.

Flash 9 hasn't been released for ARM. Flash 7, which sucks, is the only version available. I see no reason for Apple to add Flash 7 to the iPhone.

Looks like adding flash didn't happen. Wish they'd hurry up and add new features.

Its may work with Adobe Media Player. We may see it with a major iPhone update.
