Major hole in Windows Phone 7 still exists

An enormous gap in the Windows Phone 7 (W7 Mango) OS which we thought had been fixed a long time ago has just caught us out. Unlike our rival publications, GoMobile News actually eats its own cooking. So we were trying to view a live webcam feed on our Nokia Lumia 800 W7 Mango smartphone. After hours of messing around, we discovered that Adobe still hasn’t created a version of Flash for WP7 – even though it was rumoured to be working on such an offering as long ago as 2010. The net effect was that we couldn’t view a webcam feed on our Mangophone despite our best efforts.
