Flash Lite 2.1 for BREW Beta

On Monday, we released:
Flash Lite 2.1 for BREW Beta
The release enables Flash developers to convert, test, and run their Flash applications and content on a BREW-based phone. Once deployed, Flash Lite 2.1 for BREW will create a way for developers to make money selling their content through Carrier download catalogs.
The best part of the BREW platform is that Flash Lite 2.1 can be downloaded over-the-air to the phone when a user selects a piece of Flash-based content.
So, if you have a great idea for an application or already have a great application you’d like to sell thre the BREW Delivery System, check these tools out! We’re always looking for great stuff to show off to our partners, at conferences, and for other marketing purposes, so drop us a line when you have something great to show.

It looks like it’ll be a good showing for Adobe, as we’ll be talking more about Flash Lite coming for the BREW platform. I don’t want to steal the thunder of the announcements and show presentations, but I will tell you to watch our Flash Lite product and developer center pages over the next 24 hours:

Some interesting things should be going on there shortly.

* CTIA, April 5th, Las Vegas – Largest US-based mobile show, previously held in New Orleans and now in Las Vegas, seems to always end up somewhere *fun*
* Golden Week, April 29th, Japan – The time of the year when the Japanese mobile industry unveils new products
