Flash lite 3 developer edition launched.
December 3rd, 2007
as of 4pm PST on friday 30th nov, the flash lite 3 developer edition player
is available on Adobe Labs.
This now allows the Flashlite community as a whole to start actively creating
and testing their own FL3 content.
The developer player provides the Flash Lite 3 Developer Edition for Nokia
N95 (non-US 3G version) devices; however, technically it should work on any
Nokia S60 3rd edition or later devices. Adobe has not certified Flash Lite 3
Developer Edition on any other Nokia S60 3rd edition devices and cannot
guarantee that the player will work on them.
The developer edition has the following features & limitations
• no serial number required
• standalone content support only
• Nokia S60 3rd edition and newer devices supported
• Player loads the developer edition startup screen (as per 2.1 developer
edition player) ( this will not be in place on OEM installed devices)
The first shipping devices with Flash Lite 3 pre-installed will be Nokia S60
models and will be available in Q1 2008.
Also there will be a discussion forum dedicated to FL3 Developer Edition:
