More than 40 handsets have been launched.
Demand for Flash on handsets comes from two directions. Content creators already familiar with Adobe's tools would like to be able to extend their reach to as many devices as possible.

The other side of the coin are the users that expect to be able to use Flash content on their phones so they get the same view of the web as they do from a PC.
