      This basically means less division of the internet, and that is good.  New chipsets for smartphones come with upto 6 cores, and match and even surpass many stationary computers.  For such devices there is no need for a watered down mobile version of Flash.  The full version can easily be used.

      I still would have liked to see the promised mobile version of Flash 11 which was promised in the first quarter of next year, but this is probably the best path.

      From the linked article:

      "Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates."

      Sounds like it's all versions of Flash on mobile devices, not the stripped down version of Flash that used to be all you could get.
