So Adobe is working with Apple and “hope[s] to have Flash installed on over a million shipped devices by the end of the year“?
If you consider that:
- The (ARM11-based) CPU in the current iPhone is said to lack the raw power to run CPU-intensive applications like Flash
- Adobe has teamed up with ARM to optimize Flash on their processors and especially on the new ARM Cortex (which has been confirmed to be the CPU in the Palm Pré, which seems a great iPhone-competitor)
- “shipped devices” seems to imply that Flash would come pre-installed
- Apple sells more than 1 million devices each month (based on the past 2 quarters)
So we can expect a new ARM Cortex-based iPhone in time for the EOY holiday sales?
