Flash in Smartphones by 2012
Adobe's latest Flash Player 10.1 Update, on track for delivery in the first half of 2010, has been designed to provide consistent browser-based runtimes for smartphones, netbooks, traditional PCs and Web-connected tablets running a variety of operating systems such as Google Android, Windows Mobile, WebOS, and desktop OSs.

Adobe predicts that Flash Player will be on over 150 million smartphones shipping in 2012.
