My guess is that instead of a "Flash 7 player for PPC", we will have FlashLite 2.0 which will be a scaled down version of Flash 7, supprting AS2 and some other features of Flash 7 that are useful for mobile. MM has already made mention of the features of FlashLite 2.0 and will be providing an overview in a session at Max 2005.

MM may decide to make FlashLite 2.0 the standard for all Flash enabled devices, instead of having all these different versions and types of Flash mobile players floating around. I hope they do this, as it would be more easy to develop content in this situation.

FlashLite 2.0 might be officially announced later this year, but it is too early to know how long before OEM or operators begin licensing it.
