I heard flash was going to be accepted as an Iphone development tool, is this true. Also is there any advantage to learning object-c vs using an environment like Sencha touch, javascript, html5 and css3?

No, flash is not going to be accepted as an iPhone development tool. Apple is totally against that. As for sencha touch, appcelerator and similar products/frameworks, they are accepted, but of course apps of this kind are not going to make use of all iOS functionalities

Please don't think I'm trying to be a smarty-pants, but since I don't know the capabilities of the iOS, will having access to the capabilities of the iOS make that much difference? What capabilities would an iOS written app have that a non-iOS written app would not have.

Anything needing 2d or 3d graphics is one example. Different calendars (Islamic, Hebrew, etc) is another. Accessing camera and user contacts is yet another example.

Sorry, my info was quiet old. On the 9th of September, the terms of agreement were changed, and the line that prevented flash CS5 apps, and other similar tools from being accepted was totally remove. This means that you can code using flash and use the "Export to App" function in CS5. Sorry for the wrong info earlier
