Adobe and Microsoft working closely together on bringing Flash 10.1 to WP7

Talk of Flash on Windows Phone 7 was cooled a bit when Steve Ballmer announced the OS, saying it will not ship with the web runtime, but may come in a later version.

Recently Mike Chambers, principal Product Manager for developer relations for the Flash Platform at Adobe, reconfirmed that both Adobe and Microsoft are targeting Flash 10.1 for the browser in Windows Phone 7.

One thing I wanted to clarify as it may have been lost in some of the other news is that Adobe and Microsoft are working together to bring Flash Player 10.1 to Internet Explorer Mobile on Windows Phone 7 Series.

I don’t have an eta or other specifics right now, but it is something that both Adobe and Microsoft are working closely together on.

This is rather good news, and suggests we can hold out for Hulu on our phones some time in the future after all.
