Adobe now accepting requests for AIR and Flash for Android betas

Getting Flash on Android has proved to be a lesson in patience. Adobe said a beta would be available in the fall of 2009, but it’s looking more likely that we won’t see it until Summer/Fall 2010. And it will only be available to devices capable of running it; sorry, G1 fans, but you’re out in the cold.

Those of you with more powerful phones like the Nexus One and Motorola Droid can at least take comfort in knowing that Adobe is now letting Android users sign up for the beta of both Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2.0. Head over to the Flash Blog and see how you can sign up for one or both of these upcoming apps.

You can now sign up to be notified when the first public betas of both Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2.0 are available. We just started the private betas and we are really looking forward to getting these technologies into your hands as soon as possible. There are going to be so many interesting things that you will be able to do on Android and there are also going to be many new skills that you will need to learn, especially if you are new to mobile design. One thing that will help you tremendously is to learn more about optimizing content for mobile devices. There are separate sign-up pages for Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2.0 so go on over and get registered. Unfortunately I can’t give any information about the specific dates for the betas.
