I can't say for sure but IE 10 "metro" on the PC has a very limited usage of it. Only on "approved" sites. IE 10 on the XBOX 360 doesn't have it at all. So my guess would be no Windows 8 phones won't come with flash. You can get flash for Android over at the adobe site still but I'm not sure that will work for Windows phones.

Maybe those websites need to update their streaming player to the new standard.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

To the best of my knowledge, Windows Phone 8 will not have Adobe Flash.  As it uses the same overall core as Windows 8, I would imagine it would be possible but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I have to assume that as having Flash support has not been mentioned, at least anywhere that I've seen, it will not be supported by WP8.  I would imagine that Microsoft would announce that as a potential feature if they were going to include it, but who knows.

Nice in theory but there are tons of site that will continue to be flash only for YEARS. Which is why it's dumb to abandon it. Another reason why I dislike Steve Jobs. maybe in 5 years it might be the right time to move on from flash but it WAY too early now.

The standard needs to die. Adobe already sees it. People are just afraid of changes and by installing plugins increases the risks of intrusions. So far in all hacking events the most used methods have been use of plugins as a form of entry.

Adobe only "sees" it because Apple forced their hand. Fact is HTML 5 is is not standard a very small % of sites use it. Flash is use in FAR more sites. An at the end of the day doesn't matter if flash needs to die and if sites SHOULD be using HTML 5 the fact is they don't. And if I'm paying hundreds of $$$ for a device that connects to the internet it better darn well allow me to actually use the internet.

Here's an example. Go to ESPN and try watching a video. You need flash. Now ESPN is not some small site that no one goes to. It's major site. Same thing with NFL.com. In fact I bet more than half of the top 100 most visited sites don't have ANY HTML 5 capability.
