Welcome to Embeddedflash.com. Its 2014 and the landscape in multimedia world has changed quite a bit HTML5 standard is complete and Flash is no longer existent on mobile.

Update: “Intel to Apple-use our processor so you can run Flash!”

Devices- Cellphones, Flash Lite 3, Flash Player 7 SDK, Processors- ARM October 28th, 2008

OK- since Intel blamed Apple for choosing ARM (and not having Flash), it has sort of issued an apology saying that the comments were inappropriate.  One of the main reasons why Atom is not in iPhone is clearly because of its power consumption.
