Flash Lite and Symbian Signed

leave a comment »

I ran into an interesting blogpost from Alessandro today, reminding the Flash Mobile community how important Symbian Signing is. It is not an easy process but there is a lot of documentation at Forum Nokia for instance.

To distribute your Flash Lite content for Nokia S60 devices it better that everyone becomes familiar with the Symbian Signed process. The Nokia Flash Lite Library has a great section explaining the process.

Remember that there is a cost associated with the Symbian Signed process and that for the OVI Store and content distributed via content aggregators the process is required.

Now it is just up to you and your creativity in order to get some stunning Flash Lite content in this store!

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic : Nokia’s first S60 full-touch device

with one comment

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.
  • Landmarks.
  • System information.
  • Sensors.

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.”

For those who migh have missed the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic leaks, the first S60 touchscreen handset packs a 3.2″ screen of the exciting widescreen resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. A 3.2 megapixel autofocus shooter and VGA video at 30 fps are the imaging assets. There’s quad-band GSM support and 3G with HSDPA. Some of the other extras include: GPS, 3.5mm standard audio jack, TV-out and a microSD card slot. An ambitious music offering, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will come with 8GB microSD card in the retail package and stereo surround speakers.

At last: check out this cool video to experience the look and feel of the first Nokia Touch Screen Device!
