Adobe: Windows Phone 7 Will Not Have Flash

The countdown has begun to the announcement of Windows Phone 7 at MWC 2010 and previous rumors that the platform will not support Flash have been vindicated by Adobe themselves:

flash-logo“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.”

It sounds as if Flash will eventually come to Windows Phone 7, it simply won’t be available on launch. I guess that means no wack-a-mole banners for you advertising game lovers.
