Microsoft accepts Flash for Windows Mobile

Ian Lamont writes "Despite Microsoft's aim to take on Adobe Flash with Silverlight, the company has decided to support Flash on Windows Mobile devices. Both companies are now working together on integration and OEM distribution, but Microsoft is still mum on when consumers will be able to use Flash or Silverlight on their Windows Mobile phones. Competitive pressures are surely at work here — the article points out that Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and LG already support Flash, but only Nokia has announced Silverlight support, and only on some models starting later this year. In addition, the other major handset maker — Apple — doesn't support Flash on the iPhone and has no plans to do so in the near future. The featured article also notes that Microsoft has licensed the Adobe Reader LE software, so owners of Windows Mobile devices will be able to view PDFs."
