    First of all, we have to give major credit to 9to5mac.com for breaking the news and putting 2 and 2 together. Reading through the forum discussions over the last few days, the lack of Flash was definitely a disappointed to many. We'll this breaking news might just be enough to turn that frown upside down!

    Check out below how the New York times appear on an iPhone without flash.

    UPDATE: 9to5mac followed up and found out they were hi-res mockup/optimized pages used for the promotional material. Likely NO Flash.

    looks like a picture from apple themselves. Its just a simple chop.

    We clearly saw them pull this up at the key note event and it had a missing plug error.

    Looks like the same thing happened with the launch of the iPhone 3G:

    Did Steve Jobs demo a Flash-enabled iPhone 3G?

    The big players will have (some already have) alternatives for those detected using iphone/ipad. Dedicated apps will get around it, and as these devices show up more and more on website analytics, things will change, as you can't afford to alienate such a sizeable market.

    If Apple stick to their guns and their products flourish, flash will just get pushed out of the equation. It's just a case of whether flash is that vital that browsing devices not supporting it can actually take off and dominate... I think they can on the back of the apps
