Adobe announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that Flash and AIR would be available for the Android platform in the first half of the year as part of a broader effort by the Open Screen Project to bring the software to a vast bevy of phones running the BlackBerry platform, Symbian OS, Palm’s webOS and Windows Mobile. Adobe also released the beta version of Flash 10.1 to developers and content providers worldwide.
My obsession with access to one particular program continues to dominate my take on any news that could possibly be tied to it. I am speaking of the AIR Twitter app, TweetDeck, which I’m hoping will finally be coming to Android.
Whatever happens with TweetDeck, I suspect AIR will open up a Universe of possibilities for social apps. Adobe simply says that it “allows developers to easily create contextual applications that are characterized by their ability to adapt presentation and performance to different application contexts while reusing code for each device or platform.”
Check out videos of Flash and AIR running on Android after the break:
