It's been a while since we've heard a peep about Adobe's Flash 10
for smartphone initiative, but according to a slide from its Q2 Fiscal Year 2009 earnings presentation, the platform's on track for a beta release this October at the company's MAX conference. Prime mobile OS candidates for the beta include those from Adobe's Open Screen Project, which at last count included Nokia
, Google, and Microsoft -- and unless there's been some behind closed doors meetings, the two glaring omissions
on that list are still gonna be bugging you come this Halloween.
