Available Now: Developer Prerelease of AIR for Android

We are pleased today to announce the public availability of the Adobe AIR for Android Developer Prerelease program. Any designer or developer interested in building Android applications using the Flash Platform is welcome to join this program to get access to our beta SDK. Whether you are already an experienced Flash developer or just interested in learning Flash, we encourage you to join our prerelease program to get started on building Android applications today using AIR.

You will gain immediate access to our beta AIR Android SDK

By joining the prerelease program, developers will also have access to a new extension to
Flash Professional CS5 that publishes directly to Android devices. The extension adds a new AIR for Android publish setting that works in the shipping and 30-day trial versions of Flash Professional CS5.

At Google I/O today, we are also showing several AIR applications running on Android smartphones. These applications were built by members of a small private prerelease program we have been running for the past month. Their experience has been very positive and they have already created some great applications with our early builds.

We continue to make great progress towards releasing AIR for Android in the second half of this year. We look forward to working with Google and other Open Screen Project partners to bring innovative applications created with AIR to multiple platforms and devices.

Thanks,
Michael Chou
Product Manager, Adobe AIR for Android

    Any chance of running Froyo on a Desire? If not, Air should run ok on Eclair, too, right? Any limitations, besides poorer performance?
