Flash Lite down under

Via wireless watch : NEC Australia has announced the launch of their first i-mode 3G mobile phone - the NEC N600i ...Available now in Telstra stores...

It would appear from a look at the product manual that swf playback is supported as an imode feature. More than likely this means Flash Lite 1.1 is supported. This will be of welcome news to a few of the Flash Lite developers I know in that part of the world!

Its also I good indication that as 'overseas' i-mode service providers move their handsets to 3G capabilities there is more likelihood that we will start seeing more Flash Lite 1.1 support.

Hey Nick, yeah good news that more enabled phones are finding their way down here. The Telstra i-mode network theose phones are for has been VERY slow to take off here, but there's a new 3G service being launch in early 2006 from Telstra, plus i-mode 2.0 which, from what I've heard, has a good chance of supporting FL 1.1 ... fingers crossed :)

Hi Dale, Yeah I think the 3G imode will be the changing point, over in Europe too. Partly because the handsets will be better, they need to be if you consider the quality of some of the new Nokia, Sony and Vodafone handsets for 3g.
