Windows Mobile 7 will not support Adobe Flash at launch In what can only be considered a disappointment, Adobe has confirmed today that the upcoming Windows Mobile 7 will not have Flash support at launch.
"Microsoft and Adobe are working closely together. While the newest version of Windows Phone won't support Flash at initial availability, both companies are working to include a browser plug-in for the full Flash player in future versions of Windows Phone. More details will be shared at Microsoft MIX next month," reads the Adobe statement.

Windows Mobile 7 is expected to be officially launched tomorrow.

Whaaaaat? Oh, come on Microsoft! It's bad that we had to wait so long for one of these babies, and then you break our hearts: NO FLASH. I mean, WTF? Hopefully, they'll have an update to fix this, but at least have something temporarily in place so that we can see what it has to offer. I for my part will NOT buy one until it has flash, after all, that's what controls most of the web video in the internet anyways, right?- BLUEBOY
