O2 announces UK i-mode launch

Finally i-mode is coming to the UK courtesy of O2. It will be really interesting to see how it takes off, assuming its been implemented with some quality content. Launch date in the UK is set for October 1st and its seems like they have quite a few big players setup to provide content and services. As far as the handsets are concerned, theres 2.5G and 3G but other than that the specs are little thin at the moment. There is no sign of Flash Lite in the specs, as an integral part of i-mode it would be a shame if it isnt installed in the handsets.
