Yes of course. How well it performs though, well not as great as PC land… but that is an Adobe problem.

7 million iPhone users per month attempt to download Flash. Looks to me like Apple’s going to have to buckle at some point if this upward trend continues

There seems to be a general tendency from mobile developers to develop “iPhone websites” because the iphone is simply a cool gadget (– or at least regarded that way by a great deal of the public). However the truth is that Nokia sells more Internet smart phones than Blackberry and Apple combined. And even then, Blackberry is still on top of the iPhone.

If I can find a link back, a recent mobile developer bashed everyone who is simply developing iPhone compatible websites, because it’s against the spirit of standards based design.

Yup, here we go: http://www.quirksmode.org/blog/archives/2010/02/the_iphone_obse.html

Edit: It should however be noted that he’s talking about sales figures and not about internet market share. I have a feeling a lot of Nokia users don’t surf the web like iPhone users do. But I’d need to see a chart of that, searching…

Edit 2: Found it – http://gs.statcounter.com/#mobile_browser-ww-monthly-200902-201001-bar

Looking at that I’d say it’s pretty obvious that simply coding iphone sites will put you out of business.

I’ve done a lot of reading recently and I have to say this is the best article I’ve read by far:

I’ll never understand someone who wants to restrict the way content and experiences are delivered on the web. The web should be about choice. And we should all respect each others choice to use or not use whatever software/plugins we want. And I’d say 7 million attempts to download Flash from iPhones is a huge statement in regards to this.

Thanks for the link Arik :) It’s interesting that Opera is the largest mobile browser.
