At least Adobe did demo Flash 10 on an n900 a while ago... As soon as it
is released they or someone alse just need to put it in a repo and it is
just an upgrade away.
As for Flash on other Meego devices, I think it will happen for the
1. Adobe wants to make Flash ubiquitous and make people not use the
iPad/pod/phone for that reason.
2. Every other vendor will want to have a killer feature that Apple does
not have. They will push Flash if possible as well.
Thus Apples refusal to allow Flash on their Messiah pad/pod/phone gives
everyone else an incentive to support it!
