Adobe has announced that recent updates to Flash Builder and the Flex framework now support iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry PlayBook. Flash Builder and Flex, both now at version 4.5, are included in Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium and Master Collection, but can be bought separately as well ($249 for Flash Builder Standard, Premium version is $669).
