Answer Wiki:
For the last few months, there have beenb many sites that would decode simple flash clips and provide them in a more javascript based solution. This seems to allow some basic flash viewing on the iPhone, but not for advanced capabilities or functions. The very interesting thing is that Microsoft's equivalent of flash which is called "Silverlight" will most likely be compatible with both iPhone and Android. Back when Microsoft started developping the solution, they shared much of the developement progress and documentation with Novell which will be providing the platform and plugins to run on several different platforms. For physicians HTML 5 may offer an alternative to Flash, but luckely there are plenty of more alternatives out there.
