I had the ‘pleasure’ of sitting next to a lawyer screaming previously confidential information into his mobile phone on the return home from a trip to New York.
It seems that Motorola is actively working with Google/YouTube to bring their content directly to your mobile phone using Flash Lite. While they still seem to have some issues with licensing for international distribution, it made me briefly wonder if this would be one of the apps that really pushes Flash Lite.
It also made me wonder about seeing some version of Flex on your friendly mobile phone some day. That said, with the recent open source announcements and the ideas behind Apollo, it really make me think that Flex Lite is a legitimate idea. Yes, it is big, but I came from the world of embedded programming and I don’t think it is beyond reason when embedded device memory size and processor speed is now a factor of hundreds/thousands greater than even 3 years ago.
Now we just need to find some time to write this too….
