If you are looking for a technically savvy, energetic business development, marketing or sales person, please email me.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 has Flash Lite with Opera

Browsers, Devices- Cellphones, Flash Enabled Devices, Flash Lite 3, OS- Windows Mobile/CE, Processors- ARM November 4th, 2008

XPERIA X1 Hands-On by WMExperts I came accross this post on mobiletechaddicts.com. It says that the Flash Lite plugin is available for Xperia X1 and works well with Opera. I have not seen X1 in action yet (and I don’t think its available with any carrier in US yet), but it looks like a cool device. X1 has dual ARM core running at 528 MHz and is running Windows Mobile 6. With 128 MB RAM, I think it has enough juice to run Flash content even from youtube. The post does talk about a ‘lag’ in youtube content, which may even come from slow network. ......continue reading

iPhone and Flash Lite 3 port: A technical analysis

Browsers, Devices- iPhone, Flash Lite 3, Flash Lite ports, H.264, mpeg and other media codecs June 23rd, 2008

Much is being discussed about why Flash is not available on iPhone, and why it is taking so long for Adobe and Apple to release it and if it even will be released. Flash Lite has already been ported to several different devices, so there is no reason why it can not be ported to iPhone.. Whatever the reason may be, I have analyzed various hardware and software factors that could impact Flash port and performance on iPhone. In reality, if there is management will, a Flash port on iPhone is very much possible. From the technology perspective, the only limiting factor could be the performance which can be overcome by using video acceleration. ......continue reading
