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.
