Calling all developers! Today, Adobe and Sony announced the Adobe AIR App Challenge, Sponsored by Sony. We’re looking to get some great AIR apps on Android Market optimized for the two “Sony Tablet” models coming out this fall.Adobe-AIR-Gets-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Support

The contest will give developers selected as Finalists pre-release access to “Sony Tablet” prototypes along with the latest version of Adobe tools and AIR. The categories for the App Challenge include Entertainment, Lifestyle & Community, Games, Business & Productivity, and Innovation. Only 80 Finalist slots are available, so submit your apps today and no later than Oct. 10!

Additionally, Sony is a platinum sponsor for Adobe MAX, Adobe’s annual conference kicking off in LA on Oct. 1. If you submit working versions of your apps by Sept. 16, they could be selected as a MAX Showcase App and you could win a full conference pass, paid travel to MAX (Oct. 1-5), and additional prizes! Final app submissions are due and must be available on Android Market by Nov. 11.

Visit the Adobe AIR App Challenge site for details and deadlines. Please note that due to the need for early access to pre-release prototypes, the contest is only open to submissions from the US, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and the UK. We look forward to seeing the innovative application experiences you bring to Sony’s new tablets!

    May I know why your contest is restricted to nationalities of above mentioned selected countries? Dont you think it is unfair. Iam keen to participate in this contest- but unfortunately India is not included in the above list.

    We appreciate the feedback, Greg and Shimju. Unfortunately, due to the need for early access to pre-release prototypes, the contest right now is only open to submissions from the US, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and the UK.
