Admob has just released their mobile statistics for november, and have highlighted a few points:
It is interesting that large numbers for smartphone users are now using using wifi networks to connect to the net. If this trend increases significantly, the kind of media rich mobile applications that can be developed becomes very exciting. Higher quality streaming video & sound and no worries about longer connection times with more data passed, as the wifi network erases the data cost issues of connecting via the network. Maybe more applications will start to be developed with a 'network' and 'wifi' mode built in....

Mark Doherty has announced the release of the new mobile packager 1.1
As you know we’ve been working very hard on the next version of the Adobe Mobile Packager. In fact a little harder than we anticipated as I’m sure you’ve noticed that I posted the sneak peek more than a couple of weeks ago. Ultimately I wasn’t happy with some features including the Symbian and Windows Mobile signing workflows. I think you’ll agree that the engineering team have done a wonderful job in making it easy to Create->Package->Sign->Distribute packages.

Adobe Releases Flash Platform Media and Text Frameworks as Open Source
Not specifically mobile related, but shows Adobe's trend towards opening up and integrating the Flash Platform so worth taking a look at and keeping an eye on.
Extract from the press release:
Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced two new Adobe® Flash® Platform open source initiatives for developers, media companies and publishers. Open Source Media Framework (OSMF), part of the project previously code named Strobe, enables developers to quickly and easily build more robust, feature-rich media players optimized for the Adobe Flash Platform. The Text Layout Framework (TLF) will help developers bring sophisticated typography capabilities to Web applications. Both OSMF and TLF are now freely available as open source software, helping content owners extend their online media efforts as they look to create new business opportunities and monetization strategies for publishing on the Web.

Building a List component in Flash Lite - new ADC article
Darren Osadchuk has written a great new article which as been featured on the Adobe Develeper network site :
In this tutorial I'll describe how to build a simple but useful List component for Flash Lite applications. You may be familiar with the ActionScript 2.0 List component that ships with Adobe Flash CS4 Professional. Due to the memory and processor constraints of the mobile environment, that component isn't practical for use in Flash Lite applications. This article includes the sample files for the completed custom List component. The sample project can be extended and updated to tailor any part of it to fit the needs of your Flash Lite mobile application.

Demo files from the Tips & Tricks mobile session @ MAX
Mark Doherty has posted some interesting news about a new seriers of tutorials for flash lite that are being released.
From the series I expect that viewers will learn how to use Adobe Device Central, discover how to construct a mobile interface and to work with multimedia including FLV. We’ve tried to build out a set of topics that we get most questions on, things like video optimization, performance and the ‘basics’ such as object orientated programming and memory management. The focus will remain on Flash Lite 3.x, although many of the APIs and features work everywhere.
Dale Rankine of moket fame will be presenting them, and i am sure they will help people new to mobile to start making engaging flash based content.
