Flash, the pervasive rich media application, will finally be available on a range of mobile devices with the release of Flash Player 10.1, the company has announced.

The new player will work on several mobile operating systems including Google Android, Blackberry, Palm webOS, Symbion, and Windows Mobile.  (No iPhone)

This appears to be a big breakthrough for Adobe. A year ago on the MIT campus, I interviewed Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch about the challenges and opportunities in making Flash ubiquitous on mobile devices as it is on personal computers.
