Flash Lite statistics, 1.4 billion enabled handsets in next 3 years

Vivek found an interesting report about Flash Lite market research. Finally more market research studies are looking at Flash Lite.

Currently Flash Lite as a technology platform is second to J2ME as installation base. Hopefully we will see more statistics in the near future.
Adobe’s Flash Lite technology has taken off rapidly in the last 18 months. Cumulatively, over 301 million FL devices, of which over 90% are cellphones, have been shipped since 2003. The base continues to strengthen in Japan, but in 2008 we will see shipments of Flash Lite-enabled cellphones in the rest of the Asia Pacific region and Western Europe exceed shipments in Japan for the first time since the launch of Flash Lite. A further 1.4 billion FL-enabled phones are expected to be shipped globally over the next three years alone, at which point over 46% of phones shipped are likely to support Flash Lite. This report gives a global forecast of the market for Flash Lite-enabled phones with detailed analysis of 23 countries, and splits by Flash Lite version, air interface and network operator.”
