iPhone to get Flash "within the next couple of months"

According to Walt Mossberg, Apple is going to add Flash support to the iPhone "within the next couple of months". This revelation came in response to a question on a recent column:

Q: If the iPhone’s Web browser is so good, why can’t it play video on Web sites I visit?

At launch, the iPhone version of the Safari browser is missing some plug-ins needed for playing common types of Web videos. The most important of these is the plug-in for Adobe’s Flash technology. Apple says it plans to add that plug-in through an early software update, which I am guessing will occur within the next couple of months. (Read the whole article here.)

This is definitely great news and an important step towards the iPhone's browser truly supporting the full Internet :)
