    Adobe Flash Lite Distributable dropped 

    Just came back from a relaxing weekend, with a totally un-relaxing news: as reported, among others, by Leonardo, Alessandro and Mariam, Adobe just dropped the Flash Lite Distributable Player, to entirely focus on Flash 10.1 (for the mobile browser), Air Mobile (for standalone) and Flash Lite 4 (for low-end devices).

    This is a huge, even if someway predictable, news for all mobile developers and companies that have been and are currently focusing their efforts around the Flash Lite Distributable player to provide their content to users.

    I imagine some more news coming in the following days or weeks, that would help to clarify how mobile devices, distributions channels and development tools will evolve. Right now, we can just guess it’ll take some time to have a new, clear strategy built around Flash on mobile, and I’d be glad to hear your opinions about this.

    Meanwhile, let’s join Dale in his minute of silence for the brave Dandelion! :)

    Flash Lite Distributable Player: public beta available! 

    The public beta of Flash Lite Distributable Player is finally available!

    What does it mean? In few words: no more worries about Flash Lite versions on users’ devices, more distribution opportunities for developers, and more applications for users!

    In Adobe’s words:

    Since the distributable player solution mimics the successful Adobe Flash® Player desktop model of content-triggered downloads, you can be confident that your users’ devices will always have the latest Flash Lite runtime.

    Plus, the distribution model enables you to deliver free or paid applications to millions of open OS smartphones, through direct-to-consumer distribution or your existing distribution channels, or via Adobe’s aggregator partners, which include GetJar, Thumbplay, and Zed.

    Finally, this solution gives end users a better experience by providing intuitive discovery and installation of Flash Lite applications. Consumers using supported Windows Mobile and S60 phones in India, Italy, Spain, UK, and the U.S. can easily download applications. (Additional countries will be added over time.) After downloading an application, consumers see its user-friendly icon in the device menu.

    Just great!
