Verizon To Use Flash For Applications and Customization

Verizon today announced it will include Adobe Flash technology in future handsets. Flash will be used as a platform to deliver applications, online content and also interface customization. Japanese carriers use Flash in a similar manner - providing online content, applications and home screen customization. The most recent version of Flash can even be used to customize the entire interface of the phone, not just the main menu. Verizon has not announced the extent to which it will use Flash in the new handsets nor when those handsets will launch.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
This will be very interesting to see how this all plays out. What kind of customization and at what cost. What kind of content etc etc. Time will tell. Come on verizon don't lame out
I guess time will tell guys, interface customization to me means the ability of no red bars/and other custom options and my guess is that they will give us this option. At least that's what I'm hoping for.

If you can't beat 'em, BUY 'EM!!

It's MacroDobe Flash Now!!!

So, what used to be $199, is NOW $899.

Here's hoping

I can't stand Verizon's death grip proprietary UI that doesn't allow you to customize anything. It's getting to where there's only a few phones they offer that have a native UI. I'm not overly expectant, but this is a glimmer of hope in the direction of better software in the future.

Happy Campers

I'm currently pleased with Verizon's proprietary GUI...but for those who aren't, this'll make them happy.
That's me muchdrama and yes I will be a happy camper.
You guys really need to re-read the article. It states flashes abilities, not what Vzw is planning on allowing on their handsets. Read the last line. The day vzw allows a third party technology to be used on their handsets without restriction hell ...
