Adobe announces Flash Lite 3 for mobile phones

Adobe has announced 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, the world's most popular video format, and browse
Flash-enabled web sites when integrated with a mobile web browser.

Both NTT DoCoMo and Nokia have 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. 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.
