Adobe made their stance perfectly clear a while ago with regards to mobile - using Flash to produce apps via Air, and focusing on desktop browsers.
They dropped the support for mobile browser-based Flash ages ago, and this is just the next phase in that process.
But apps in Flash are getting built more and more, and open a lot more opportunities in terms of performance, capability and the benefits of a single code base.

One of the articles I read made two interesting observations: 1. that Flash has never really been an important part of Adobe's business; and 2. that the in-browser no-plug-in approach was the way to go.
It seems to me that this eerily echos the demise of QTVR as a delivery option: not that important to the software manufacturer, and a user resistance to downloaded plug-ins in general.
The more things change the more they stay the same ...
