Macromedia's 'Flash Lite' To Support Wireless Apps



Courtesy of TechWeb News

Macromedia Inc. has agreed to create a version of its mobile Flash player as an extension of Qualcomm's BREW application development environment, the companies said Tuesday.

Flash Lite, expected to ship next year, will provide mobile developers with the tools needed to build Flash capabilities within BREW applications. Flash is an animated graphics technology, and BREW, or binary runtime environment for wireless, is used to build cellular phone services, such as email and games. The technology is directly supported in the CDMA chip sets from Qualcomm.

During the past year, shipments of mobile devices running Flash have nearly tripled to 35 million units, from 12 million units, the companies said. That number, however, is small in comparison to the 760 million cellular phones projected to ship this year, according to International Data Corp.

Macromedia is based in San Francisco, and Qualcomm is headquartered in San Diego. Adobe Systems Inc. has announced plans to acquire Macromedia this year.
