At last, Flashlite comes to Windows Mobile Devices!!!

Adobe have announced a licencing agreement that will see both Flash Lite 3.x and above and the Adobe Reader LE software available on Windows Mobiles; the former, to be released as a plugin for Internet Explorer Mobile, will allow streaming media sites such as YouTube and alike to be viewed on the hand held devices.  The latter will make PDF format files – whether received as email attachments or as online content – viewable.  All new official Windows Mobile OEM licensees will have access to the new plugins.

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

The move comes shortly after Microsoft’s own Silverlight streaming media platform was licenced to Symbian for use in S60, S40 and UIQ powered-devices.  However Windows Mobile version of Silverlight is yet to see the light of the day.
