The Web 2.0 expo is currently underway in San Francisco. As part of the event, Adobe has been demoing an Android OS based tablet running Flash and AIR applications. According to a report published on Zedomax, these applications run “flawlessly” on the Android 2.1 based tablet prototype. Max from the site writes,
“It runs Adobe’s Flash and Air apps flawlessly. That was the first time I saw Adobe’s Air apps running on a tablet and totally impressed by how it ran. And now I can understand why Apple wants to ban Flash and other Adobe products completely from their iPhones and iPads, because it’s rather incredible technology.”
There is no information on the Android tablet prototype on demo, but it is surely a more than worthy competitor to the iPad.
