Nokia and Japan's NTT DoCoMo were the first companies confirming to use Flash Lite 3 in upcoming products.

According to Adobe's website, Verizon Wireless is currently the only U.S. carrier to offer cellphones with pre-installed Flash Lite software. A total of 12 handsets with Flash Lite (2.1) is currently available, including LG's Chocolate and Motorola's Motokrzr K1m, Razr V3c and V3m.
