Chip Shot: Intel x86 Devices Get Adobe AIR Support on Android

Adobe today announced native packaging support of AIR applications for Intel® Architecture based Android devices. According to Adobe, they are responding to increasing developer demand for support of Intel® Atom™ processor-based devices. There are more than 50,000 unique AIR mobile applications published to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and Intel is excited about the opportunity this provides developers worldwide to publish new and existing content for the 40 million Intel-based tablets expected to ship this year. Adobe will be enabling developers with the ability to package their applications in both shared and captive modes. A beta version of the run-time featuring this capability will soon be available in the AIR SDK on Adobe Labs. The final version will be out with Adobe’s next major release of AIR, which will be published on the Google Play Store.
