Just not iPhones...

Flash is ubiquitous on the desktop - now Adobe is hoping it can repeat the trick with mobiles.

The company has just announced Flash Player 10.1 which will let users view Flash video and play Flash games on smartphones, netbooks and other mobile hardware.

Most major smartphone platforms will support the software - Google Android, Symbian, Palm WebOS and Windows Mobile - but Apple has yet to sign up.
