FlashLite player 2 is available

I'm sure you have read in the aggregators, but I won't do any harm to read about it once again.

FlashLite 2 player is available through the la Adobe online store, and it costs 8 € (ex. VAT).

There is no official documentation yet, and it is not possible to start developing specific content, but at least we can start testing our old FlashLite 1.1 apps against the new player ;)

You can read more about the announcement at Flash Devices.

Enjoy your new toy...

If you are into developing mobile applications, it can be a very useful resource. Here's the link:

Once again, it seems that Flashlite and J2ME run in parallel. Any thoughts?

Well, good question. Of course I can only make a guess, with the information I’ve got right now, which is:

[FlashLite] Dice

Abdul Qabiz has posted about a J2ME application I made some weeks ago, and he says that the same thing could have been done with a few lines of code in Macromedia Flash Lite.

And he's right!
