The news these days seems to go back and forth.  Adobe says they are moving on Flash for the iPhone.  Meanwhile Apple’s Webkit team are working on ways around Flash using new CSS standards

Apple, of course, has been silent on the matter.  Last we heard, Steve Jobs said last year that Flash in its current form doesn’t run well on the iPhone hardware and Flash Lite wasn’t a compelling offer.  Adobe plans to have Flash running at full speed on newer ARM hardware in the second half of this year, about the same time everyone expects some new iPhone hardware to come out.  That means Android and Windows Mobile will probably support Flash.  Maybe Blackberry and Palm Pre too.  Can Apple afford to wait on the very new CSS/HTML standards to develop?  So, what do you think?  Will iPhone 3.0 allow Flash?
