  It depends on the skills of the team, the budget, and timeline.

  That is a bit of a misnomer.  You can't run Flash in mobile browsers 
(except on most current Android  devices or Playbook) and Adobe is 
stopping future development of their mobile browser.  But you can use 
Flex/Flash to build native applications.

  Is that struggle unique to Flash?
