Adobe teams up with Verzion for Flashcast

Adobe recent announcement at the CTIA Wireless show in Orlando that they’re bringing their Adobe Flashcast service to the United States exclusively through Verizon is now happening. Meaning watching video off the internet just got a lot easier on your mobile phone.

Basically how flashcast works is it cuts out the middle man, offering channels filled with text and video content on a specific subject such as sports, weather, or entertainment that are automatically 'cast' to cell phone when your online. You can preprogram how often the content is updated, and until it is you can always read and look at the last cast on mobile in its entirety offline.

Now typing to search stuff which was so cumbersome using a cell phone are things of the past. NTT DoCoMo version already is an hit in Japan and Verizon would offer something similar to the NTT DoCoMo set up; five basic channels, with premium channels to subscribe to at an addition fee.
