Flash Lite is dead?

One of the questions you do lately is the possible death of Flash Lite. We have the Flash Player 10.1 optimized for mobile and Adobe AIR 2.5 for Android, and with that Flash Lite would be in their final days.
I’ve read articles that argued that Adobe did not know that capitalize on the success that Macromedia has with Flash Lite in Japan and began to give priority for mobile systems only now. This can be a little truth, but Adobe does not mess around, now this with full force for a variety of devices, not only mobile.
Now our question which gave title to the article, along with Flash Player 10.1, Adobe released Flash Lite 4.0 also, being a version of Flash Player for devices with limited processing resources and memory but with support for ActionScript 3.0. See the list of features available here.
For one thing, each day brings more smartphones come with Android 2.2 (Froyo), which officially supports the Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2.5. Also, we’re seeing with Android smartphones (earlier) being updated with Froyo. That is, based on Flash contents tends to grow with these major smartphones. On the other hand so far, have only a smartphone officially announced with Flash Lite 4.0, the Nokia N8 and possibly Nokia C7, the question remains, still worthwhile to develop content for Flash Lite?
And my answer is YES, even for Flash Lite 3.0 or 3.1(ActionScript 2.0) especially for Nokia devices and why I say this. Let’s see some facts:

So in conclusion, is a market for development and yet it is worth studying (and remember) Actionscript 2.0. I believe that we will have two or three years of life for Flash Lite.
