Thought few years ago that Adobe reaching 20 million units shipped would be a milestone and catching up one billion units in numbers is great to reach, but reaching half of its size really does matter. Flash Lite, Adobe’s award-winning Flash Player runtime specifically designed for mobile devices, has seen over 150 percent growth over the last year and is now delivered on mobile devices from all major handset manufacturers worldwide. including Nokia, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and many others.
