John Gruber:

Apple didn’t win. Everybody won. Flash hasn’t been superseded in mobile by any sort of Apple technology. It’s been superseded by truly open web technologies. Dumping Flash will make Android better, it will make BlackBerrys better, it will make the entire web better. iOS users have been benefitting from this ever since day one, in June 2007.

This is the proper perspective. Adobe’s ceasing of mobile Flash player development will hopefully be a boost for the continued advancement of mobile browser technology and therefore the enhancement of the mobile experience, no matter the platform or device.
