When Microsoft announced Windows Phone 7 Series, the company said that the new OS would not support Flash 10.1 at launch.
However, Adobe recently mentioned that Flash support will eventually come to WP7, and now Mike Chambers (Senior Product Manager for Developer Relations at Adobe) has reconfirmed this. According to him, Adobe and Microsoft are “working closely together” to bring to Flash Player 10.1 to Internet Explorer Mobile on Windows Phone 7 Series devices.
Unfortunately, there’s no mention on when exactly Windows Phone 7 will get Flash support.
Of course, we first have to wait for Microsoft to actually launch WP 7 – the first devices are expected to be available in late 2010 (and the LG Panther is probably one of them).
