Could this be the beginning of the end for Flash?

Adobe announced this morning that they will be halting the development of Adobe Flash for mobile devices.  After the release of Flash Player 11.1 Adobe will rededicate their mobile development resources towards HTML5.  Adobe realized that HTML5 is “the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms”.

This move will allow Adobe to better focus their resources on the development of HTML5.  Flash has been a leader for web development but it was never successfully transitioned for mobile use.  It was commonly critiqued as being sluggish.  It will be interesting to see what innovative features Adobe will add to HTML5.
