Sony Ericsson to deliver Flash Lite



It looks like the above handsets will have Flash Lite pre-installed which makes them the first real set of operator independent Flash Lite phones. Flash Lite is mentioned in the developer world white papers for the k600i. I am pretty sure that the z800i will include Flash Lite as it is essentially the v800 with SE software rather than Vodafone branding.

Anyway you look at it this is great news for Flash Lite developers. In addition they look like really great phones, even if I cant afford to buy them all just yet :)

Heres a snippet from the k600i spec:

The Macromedia Flash Lite player is pre-installed in
the phone, allowing users to take advantage of the
features of Flash images. Flash images can be
embedded as moving objects on a Web page or
they can be available as stand-alone Web pages. It
is possible to interact with flash images using the
navigation key. Flash images can be included in
picture messages.

NOTE - I had mentioned the k750 and the d750 in this post but I have since learned that the whitepaper specified Flash in error. Unfortunately the k750i and the d750 do NOT support Flash Lite.

Hi Nick, do you have an RSS feed? I'd like to aggregate you for the Flash Movbile Community site. Really loving the K600i, my friend keeps insisting it's going to change 3G in the U.K. If you can do RSS, please email me through the site :)

Hi Richard,

Yeah the k600 looks great. Being able to record and send videos is much more appealing than video calling. It will be interesting to see what you can do with flash lite and picture messaging. They are definitely going to be big sellers :)

Nick,

Any chance you can pass on a link to those white papers and specs - having a bit of a time finding them. Also, if you haven't done so already a RSS feed would be fantastic!
