Adobe sure has taken their sweet time putting out a version of their ubiquitous Flash player that works on smartphones. We still have a few months of waiting left, but Adobe assures us that by October a beta version of Flash player 10 for mobiles will be out. Symbian, Android, WebOS and Windows Mobile will all be supported in this new version of Flash.

Those of us who aren't at the Adobe MAX conference will probably have to wait until after the beta ends to get our chance to try the update. Until then you can check out a video of Flash 10 in action to tide you over.

I'm afraid that Adobe might be bringing Flash 10 to the table a little too late. The mobile Internet has done a very good job of moving beyond Flash, and most of the big video sites like YouTube are perfectly viewable on smartphones right now. Apple developed their solution to the Flash problem a while back, which is why the iPhone OS is conspicuously absent from this update.

Don't get me wrong. Finally having Flash on my Gphone will be nice, but I don't need it now as much as I did a year ago. The Internet's already started to move on.
