Adobe Systems Inc. reminded everyone today in an official statement that it still plans to release Flash Player 10.1 for several mobile platforms such as BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, webOS 2.0, Meego, Limo, and Symbian. Currently, Flash Player 10.1 has only been made available for Android 2.2 [Froyo]. Adobe is expected to focus its efforts on the new HP webOS 2.0 next.
