Nokia 5800 XpressMusic gets Flash Lite 3.1 update

“Firing the built-in App. Update on the 5800 XpressMusic will come up with a mysterious Flash Lite 3.1 Update. Mysterious in the sense that this is the first time I see Flash Lite, a core part of the OS, being updated outside the regular firmware update. Usually this kind of stuff is imbedded in the new firmware. Could this be a start to quicker and more frequent updates to Flash Lite and or other components? We’ll be reporting soon if and when we see notable changes.
According to the Adobe Flash Lite site, version 3.1 brings the following changes:

  • Improved Web Browsing, 91% of top 500 internet sites.
  • Flash 9 (AS2 only) support
  • Local Connection / HTML Text / GetURL_target / CSS support / WMode
  • H.264 support / Improved video support (smoothing, seek)
  • Improved memory handling for images
  • MP3 Streaming support
  • Support for hardware acceleration — Flash Lite 3.1 supports OpenVG 1.1 to improve flash rendering performance on capable devices.
  • Linux Reference port” via
