Macromedia brings Flash Player to Pocket PC
Author: JT Smith
Is that a Shockwave applet in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? PC Week reports on today's Macromedia announcement, in which the multimedia company announced plans for a new version of its Flash Player for Microsoft's Pocket PC platform. The new application will extend the Flash Player to popular handheld devices like Compaq's iPaq, Casio's Cassiopeia, and the HP Jornada. The portable version will lack a few features found in its desktop versions, with the most noticeable exclusion likely the lack of MP3 support.
