Adobe AIR Making its Way to Android by Fourth Quarter 2010

While Flash hasn't necessarily been missing from the Android platform, it hasn't been present in its fullest form until recently. With the launch of Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 on Android 2.2-equipped devices like the Nexus One and Motorola Droid 2, plenty of folks are eagerly awaiting Adobe's AIR platform as well. Today, at Adobe's Flash Summit in San Francisco, they gave a brief "expected" date for AIR to land on Android.

For Android, Adobe AIR will be made available some time in the fourth quarter of 2010. No exact dates, unfortunately, but at least it's better than nothing. The more troubling thing, comes in the fact that Adobe isn't talking about how AIR will be distributed, when the time comes. Whether it's OTA for devices, or if you'll be able to get your hands on it via the Marketplace is still unknown. We can also pretty much expect this only on "advanced" devices, like the Droid 2 or Nexus One. Basically, we figure the processor should be able to run the platform with ease.
