This morning Andy Rubin, Google VP of Engineering, made a guest post on the Adobe Featured blog that clearly states the commitment Google has to bringing Flash and AIR to Android-based devices. Here is a quote from the post:
“Google believes that developers should have their choice of tools and technologies to create applications. By supporting Adobe AIR on Android we hope that millions of creative designers and developers will be able to express themselves more freely when they create applications for Android devices. More broadly, AIR will foster rapid and continuous innovation across the mobile ecosystem.”
I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to hear something like this. Google wants creative professionals to be able to target the Android platform and at the same time they are not trying to prevent those same professionals from targeting other platforms.
In other Android news, developers in our private beta program continue to churn out applications at an impressive rate. Many of them have shot videos of their work so far. Below are some links for you to check out.
