Macromedia will announce on Monday that Japanese cell phone giant NTT DoCoMo will become the first carrier to offer services based on Macromedia’s Flash animation player, reports c|net. “Under Monday’s agreement, DoCoMo will include the Flash player software on new high-end I-mode phones, starting with the 505i series, to be introduced late this year in Japan. The phones will be accompanied by Flash-based services that will let subscribers take advantage of data services without having to navigate through many screens of text, said Macromedia CEO Rob Burgess. Animated weather maps, for example, would give subscribers current forecasts for the region they click on.”
