Microsoft Licenses Flash Lite and Reader LE

Flash has revolutionized the way we experience content on the web

“We are thrilled to work with Microsoft to add playback of rich, web-based Flash Player compatible content and PDF document viewing to Windows Mobile,” said Al Ramadan, senior vice president, Mobile and Devices at Adobe, as Adobe today announced that Microsoft has licensed Flash Lite software to enable web browsing of Flash Player compatible content within the Internet Explorer Mobile browser in future versions of Microsoft Windows Mobile phones.

“Flash has revolutionized the way we experience content on the web," Ramadan added, "and we are excited that Microsoft has decided to extend the experience of Flash technology to Windows Mobile users.”

“People want vibrant web experiences and access to entertainment and information anywhere, anytime,” said John O’Rourke, general manager, Mobile Communications Business at Microsoft. “Bringing Flash Lite and Reader LE to the Windows Mobile experience will give consumers more of their favorite websites on the go.”

The Flash Lite 3.x browser plug-in for Internet Explorer Mobile on Windows Mobile will provide users with access to rich and interactive web content created using Adobe Flash technology.

Windows Mobile is the platform specifically designed for mobile phones. Internet Explorer Mobile provides a compact Internet browser that is optimized for Windows Mobile phones. In fiscal year 2007, Microsoft sold 11 million Windows Mobile licenses and expects to sell more than 20 million licenses in fiscal year 2008, making Windows Mobile a leading smartphone platform globally.
