iPhone killer [clone?] with Flash UI.
February 8, 2007

Just saw this on Ryan’s entry on Zdnet. Samsung will soon roll out Ultrasmart F700 with Flash UI and full html browsing.

With full touchscreen trend catching up, most probably this will be the first phone in the genre for flash lite developers to play around.[considering the restriction on third party content development for iPhone].

Flashlite Vs. SVG
February 3, 2007

An entry posted in ITPro claims that “device shipments using XML-based multimedia open standard is twice as popular as proprietary Flash units.”
Sam Sweet of Ikivo says that more than 225 million devices with SVG tiny have been shipped worldwide while Flashlite is at 115million. The source of this figure is not stated anywhere. I am not sure, if this is a relevant news in itself, as Flashlite 1.1 /above comes with SVG Tiny support.
