Adobe Launches Flash Lite 3

Adobe has announced the availability of Adobe Flash Lite 3 software, which now supports Adobe Flash Player compatible video and enables the delivery of dynamic Web content on mobile devices. Flash Lite 3 allows mobile device manufacturers, operators and content providers to differentiate their offerings by giving users the ability to watch Flash Player compatible video and browse Flash enabled Web sites when integrated with a mobile Web browser. Both NTT DoCoMo and Nokia committed to deliver Flash Lite 3 enabled devices in upcoming releases of handsets. With over 300 Million Flash enabled mobile devices and handsets shipped so far, Adobe expects more than one billion Flash enabled devices to be available by 2010.

Flash Lite 3 more closely replicates the desktop experience delivered by Adobe Flash Player. This gives mobile users the freedom to access content whenever and wherever they want, while efficient resource management capabilities significantly improve and optimize performance for mobile devices. With Flash Lite 3, developers worldwide are able to create more engaging applications, interfaces and mobile assets that integrate video, as well as develop innovative and dynamic mobile assets such as wallpapers, screensavers or casual games.

Working closely with Adobe, Forum Nokia launches a new community for creative professionals, providing Flash developers and designers with the tools to bring their products to billions of mobile customers. Forum Nokia is the largest mobile development community in the world with 3.4 million members. It provides tools and SDKs, business know-how, market insights, technical support and other resources to help developers reach mobile consumers with rich applications, content and services.

Adobe Flash Lite runs on multiple platforms, including S60 on Symbian OS, second and third edition, Qualcomm BREW 2.x/3.x and Microsoft Windows Mobile 5, in addition to embedded operating systems on a variety of OEM platforms. This allows consistent content delivery across device types, broader distribution and simpler publishing, testing and selling of Flash Lite content for developers.
