Clarification : Flash 5 Player for Pocket PC

I wanted to clarify some information on the Flash 5 Player for Pocket PC. The player should work with any StrongArm based Pocket PC, such as the Compaq Ipaq, regardless if it is running Pocket PC or Pocket PC 2002.

SWF is not Flash

Interesting article on the O'Reilly Devcenter discussing Flash and SVG. The author is trying to overcome some of the misperceptions of Flash in the development world.

If you read through some of the comments, you will see some of these misperceptions come up, especially the "Flash is just an animation tool and can't be used for applications" argument. This may have been true with Flash 3, and maybe Flash 4, but with Flash MX I can create a very complex, functional UI in about 5 minutes, and focus my development efforts on making my application work.

Finally, while SVG mobile may hold great promise for the future, the Flash player is in the mobile space today with players for numerous mobile devices, including Pocket PCs and Nokia Communicators.
