Adobe AIR on mobiles
Adobe has announced that there will be AIR for mobiles. AIR enables standalone Flash app experience as it runs outside the browser. This is to differentiate that with Flash Player 10.1 for mobiles which is for Flash app running within the browser. No firm availability date yet and at this point, only Android is mentioned. This is a bit unfortunate and I cannot but feel that FlashLite player for browser and the standalone Flash Lite distributable player have suffered a premature death, while Flash player 10.1 and AIR for mobiles are still to come. MWC 2010 hasn’t finished yet. I can only hope that there would be more good news to come.
