Adobe building Flash Player for iPhone

Finally, some concrete news on the Flash Player for iPhone front: according to the Wall Street Journal, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen announced in a conference call to investors that Adobe has begun work on a Flash Player that is suitable for the Apple iPhone.

It looks like Adobe is building the "product in the middle" that Steve Jobs is looking for. Let's hope Apple cooperates by adding the Flash Player to Safari on the iPhone.

This is a good move by Adobe. At the very least, they'll be able to say, "look, here's the Flash Player for iPhone, now it's up to Apple whether they include it in Safari or not." If Apple doesn't then it will end up looking bad as it willfully contradicts its own promise to deliver a non-watered down version of the Internet on the iPhone.
