Nokia 5800 XpressMusic : Nokia’s first S60 full-touch device
Nokia released it first s60 5th edition device: Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. What’s cool is that S60 5th Edition continues to support Flash Lite 3.0, with the addition of ActionScript extensions to take advantage of S60 Platform Services. These extensions provide access to:
- The application manager.
- Calendar records.
- Contacts records.
- Log information.
- SMS and MMS messaging.
- The media gallery.
- Device location.
- System information.
These new APIs enable Flash Lite developers to access device-application data, such as that held in Calendar and Contacts, as well as information on a device’s location.
Together, the UI- and platform-access enhancements will enable Flash Lite developers to create a completely new breed of context-aware applications and services that provide users with information unique to their own experiences.”
