Adobe Shows Off A Multi-Touch Tablet Prototype Running Flash And Air "Flawlessly"

The Web 2.0 Expo happening in San Francisco has us quite excited, as Zedomax.com, a blog revolving around technology and gadgets, has found an Android tablet prototype smoothly running Flash and Air.

As you may remember, Adobe had a bit of a falling out with Apple last month, and vowed to instead gun for Android at full speed. With that announcement, we found out that the private Air/Flash beta has been a huge success with developers, with some porting their apps from Flash/Air to Android in a matter of hours.

Flash And Air Developers Port Existing Apps To Android In 10 Minutes, Give Feedback From The Private Beta Of Flash/Air For Android

The recent drama over Apple’s rejection of Adobe technology caused quite a stir online, generating a large number of blog posts, massive amounts of commentary, a fair share of whining, and much hating. With Adobe finally resigned to the fact that they were effectively shut out of the iPhone (at least for now), it seems like the Android community is getting much more attention suddenly, as previously reported by Android Police and others.

Adobe Ceases Its Efforts To Bring Flash To The iPhone, Concentrates On Android Instead

You can’t say you didn’t see it coming! Adobe have officially given up on any kind of development efforts for Flash and Flash tools for the iPhone, just days after announcing that a public beta of Flash is planned for Android.

After months of trying to convince Apple to allow Flash on the iPhone OS, Adobe banked big on its ‘Packager for iPhone’ application which was supposed to ship with the CS5 suite released a few days ago.

The Leaks Continue – Meet The Dell Flash And The Dell Smoke

Engadget’s leaked a few more Dell phones that just might steal the just announced Thunder’s… well, thunder (that’s the last one, I swear). This time we’re focusing on two handsets that are confirmed to run Froyo and mix things up bit when it comes to form factor.

Dell’s Smoke is a qwerty candybar with an 800MHz CPU, a 5MP autofocus camera, 14.4Mbps HSPA and dual-mic noise cancelling technology. It also packs Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, much to the surprise of no one.

Dell Sets The Stage With Their New Android UI – Will Include Flash... And Run Froyo?

Finally, a decent Android skin that isn’t HTC’s Sense UI. Along with a few details about Dell’s newest superphones, we’ve been treated with plenty of information about their custom Android skin, dubbed Stage UI.

It seems that, initially at least, this new UI will be exclusive to Dell’s newly leaked trio of high-end Android phones, the Thunder, the Flash, and the Smoke. At this point there’s a bit of confusion as to which version of Android the Stage UI will be based on, with Engadget reporting that the Thunder will run Flash and Android 2.1 and the other two phones set to run Froyo.

Queue the sad trombone.

Remember that big stink about Flash not being out on Android (and other mobile platforms) until the second half of 2010? Well, it turns out it was much ado about nothing.

Apparently, when Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen said:

We have a number of excited partners who are working aggressively with us to bring Flash to their devices whether they be smartphones, as well as handsets, and so companies like Google and RIM and Palm are going to be releasing Flash on smartphones and tablets in the second half of the year.

Flash Beta To Hit Android Devices In May, Require Froyo? We Have The Beta Sign-Up Links!

If Twitter and a few online forum posts are to be believed, Adobe had some interesting things to say about Flash hitting Android yesterday at FlashCamp, a mini-conference for developers held at Adobe's San Francisco offices.

Details are still somewhat sparse, as we're piecing them together from various sources around the web, but it appears that Adobe not only raffled off a Nexus One and demoed a few flash games on Android, but they also announced that Flash would run exclusively on Froyo builds and higher, and that both Froyo and Flash would be released in May.

Another day, another delay. Recently, Fox Business News sat down with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen to talk about their new Creative Suite 5 and the controversy regarding Apple excluding Flash from their recent software updates when he let slip that a mobile version of Flash on a variety of platforms, including Android, will be available in the second half of the year.

Motorola Twist: Another Crippled Android Phone For AT&T?

Well, we finally have some specs to match up with the mysterious photos that have been floating around the web for last few days of a new and very square Motorola Android handset.

mototwist

Another Ridiculous AT&T Phone?

We held off on reporting on the picture itself, because the story of its existence and lack of any additional information made the entire thing seem suspect. Now, though, we have some more details as Android France has released the specs for the handset, purportedly named Motorola Twist, and if you look carefully, you can see that it supports the 850/1900 WCDMA radio bands, AKA: AT&T 3G.
