Referencing this MacRumors.com post: Adobe Acknowledges That Apple’s Flash Prohibition Could Harm Business
Adobe says this:
Additionally, to the extent new releases of operating systems or other third-party products, platforms or devices, such as the Apple iPhone or iPad, make it more difficult for our products to perform, and our customers are persuaded to use alternative technologies, our business could be harmed.

This is all about Adobe adding a “Save as iPhone App” export option to Flash CS5.
Similarly, Premiere could be strengthened with better Quicktime support such as HTTP Live Streaming – something Apple doesn’t even support yet with Final Cut Pro.
Adobe has lost its battle to put Flash on the iPhone. Dead, gone, kaput. This is a good thing. Adobe should forget about the game it can’t win, and focus on the game it can.
