I’m not sure why I haven’t seen much buzz about this, but cnet has a short clip of Norm Meyrowitz, President of Macromedia Products showing a new product called Flashcast running on mobile phones. This seems to be somewhat like Central in that it is a shell for the flash player that also caches some of the content and assets. I think this is a great idea for mobile phone content and am looking forward to see what content emerges for such a platform.
What is more confusing and maybe why I have missed any news about this announcement before is that another product on the market bares the same name “Flashcast”. I also searched Macromedia’s website and only found one entry on JD’s blog about this product.
