iPhone owners do not miss out yet on this Flash Player.

The Adobe Flash Player 10.1 is bringing Flash support to Android phones. As it stands you are never going to get Flash support from Apple. Steve is totally against it and bets on HTML5. In case you are an iPhone user, you might be interested to know that Flash on Android is not that great yet.

Laptop Magazine has published a test report that has some good, but also lots of failures of the Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2. The Flash player hangs the Droid 2 phone on occasion and lots of Flash apps do not work apparently at all. It looks like a lot of Flash content needs to first be optimized for mobile consumption and then there will be much better experience.

PC Mag reports that to make the Flash Player work he had to reboot his HTC Evo 4G by removing the battery and re-inserting it. Their test results are also mixed like the ones from Laptop Mag.

From a simplicity stand point I would prefer to see the next evolotion of HTML (HTML 5) to take care of interactive media on the web - sorry Adobe.
