Flash on iDevices?

This looks like a pretty interesting alternative method to get Flash on the iPhone and iPad. From what I have read it sounds like it’s slower that regular Flash especially when it comes to interactive stuff like games. At this point it’s probably good for ads.

Smokescreen seems to take an SWF and convert into an SVG file and ad some javascript, so the end results are compatible with iPhone and and iPad.

Thanks to Karaminder for pointing me to this.

An interesting look at the iPad. The suggestion is that Flash on the iPhone would reduce the exclusivity of the device. Developers working with Flash, if it were available on the iPad/Phone, could be making apps for all of the devices that support Flash. By only allowing Apple approved languages on the i devices apps for the devices will only appear there.
