iRiver U10 supports Flash Lite 1.1

via engaget, this link summarises a few of the new features of the new U10 revealed yesterday. Included in the list is Flash Lite 1.1. Although I havent found any official documentation it seems pretty genuine. This would be the first non-phone based deployment of Flash Lite 1.1. A lot of other devices use Flash but as far as I know they use the standard SDK to implement their Flash Player. Whereas this would appear to just use Flash Lite 1.1 off the shelf. Will be interesting to see how Flash Lite is intended to be used on this device. If its not a phone then it must have a least some kind of conectivity like wifi? If there is no connectivity then why would it have Flash Lite? How would people get Flash Lite content onto the device? Needless to say I will have to get one to findout!

More toys hey!

I wonder the difference in cost involved with licensing the regular FP SDK and the per unit licensing of FL. Also with FL suited running on lower specs, this is an interesting turn up for the books.

yeah it'll be interesting to see how it develops. From the pictures it looks like the whole UI could be done in FL. Also the official spec just says mm flash not flash lite - so again a bit unclear. It would be great to develop for because there are no buttons - just the touch screen thats it!

Not sure I can justify it as a another Toy just yet :)
