i have a HTC 7 pro and love the phone due to its slide out keyboard feature. but i do have an issue with i buy things from live onilne auction ( not ebay ) and the site i use needs flash player to work. this phone does not support flash so i am unable to buy while on the move,
does anyone know how i can get flash to work on this phone or get a work around to allow the sites to work as i really dont want to replace the phone.
anyone have a date when flash will work on the windows phones,
thanks for any help.

i have a sony ericsson xperia play ( well my son does ) and that supports flash and runs the site with no issues. but i cant keep taking his phone.
so from reading above if flash is not going to get mobile support where does that leave us all as most sites run flash does these mean phone browsing is goingto stop ? i cant see that happening,
so anyone know how i can run these sites now as the phones are getting better each week yet i cant seem to run basic features from them like wedsites,

Flash doesn't even work all that great on computers. Try running a bunch of flash apps on a laptop and watch it get hotter and hotter and the battery life drop. This is why some browsers even have plug-ins to disable Flash.
Adobe is finally accepting that Flash sucks and they are working on a whole new platform called Adobe AIR. They are probably going to let Flash linger on the desktop for a while yet because some developers are lazy and it's going to take forever to eradicate that garbage from the Internet, but AIR will probably replace Flash there too eventually.
So where it leaves us is, if web developers want their sites to be accessible to the ever increasing number of mobile users, they are going to have to walk away from Flash, or at the bare minimum, make alternate mobile sites that don't use it (MANY already do this) or develop smartphone apps to give the user a better experience than any website would.

I think there's an app that downloads flash videos and converts it to something the phone understands or something like that. Its in the videos section of the app marketplace.
Though I've never used it. . . .

flash = replaced by HTML5
all sites are switching , like anything it takes time. only BIG sites started support for HTML5.
like when WP will get dual-core .. ist actually gona be worst for your phone till they actually start developing and optimizing apps/OS for Dual-core support....
