Adobe has issued a statement to clarify claims the company is working to deliver Flash support for the iPhone.

Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen confirmed his company to be working to deliver Flash support on the iPhone during Adobe’s Q1 financial conference call last night. This afternoon (US time), Adobe issued a statement of clarification – and it appears Apple will have to become involved in order to bring Flash support to the device.

"However, to bring the full capabilities of Flash to the iPhone Web-browsing experience, we do need to work with Apple beyond and above what is available through the SDK and the current license around it," the company said. 

"We think Flash availability on the iPhone benefits Apple and Adobe’s millions of joint customers, so we want to work with Apple to bring these capabilities to the device." (As reported by Information Week).

Looks like the jury’s out on this one.
