Is Sproutcore Apples Alternative for Flash on the iPhone?
Quote from article in link below "Over the last year, I’ve also outlined Apple’s efforts to starve Adobe’s Flash and AIR (and by extension, Microsoft’s me-too Flash plugin called Silverlight), at a time when pundits have insisted that Flash was a vital missing element on the iPhone and that Apple could/should/would be scrambling to port Flash to it. It might be a surprise to find that Apple’s air supply attack on Flash and its interest in dusting Windows with Cocoa are actually related."

Adobe admitted to working on Flash for the iPhone MacNN | Adobe: iPhone Flash in early development
An iPhone version of Adobe's ubiquitous Flash plug-in is still early into development, the company has admitted. In an earnings call for Adobe's second financial quarter, CEO Shantanu Narayen has responded to questions on if and when Flash will be ready for the iPhone 3G, which itself is only expected to ship on July 11th.
"With respect to the iPhone, we are working on it," says Narayen. "We have a version that’s working on the [SDK] emulation. This is still on the computer and you know, we have to continue to move it from a test environment onto the device and continue to make it work. So we are pleased with the internal progress that we’ve made to date."

I think it's probably one of those applications that is hard to code efficiently so as to make it NOT be a battery hog. I'm sure they are probably working fast and furious, but Apple is pretty diligent about resource management on the iPhone (for example, not allowing background applications). My bet is that flash eats battery life, so until it is perfected, Apple says no no no.
