Try out an early build of Adobe AIR for Android 2.1 or 2.2 right now

If you have been following the melodrama that is the Adobe/Android vs. Apple/anything that they want, you may be a non-believer that the Flash or AIR platform will ever make it to Android in a real way. Well, if you want to try out an early build of Adobe AIR and some demo apps you can with a leaked version.

It looks like DroidLife got their hands on the APK that you can download and install. They are making it clear that the build is very early which probably means that it’s somewhat buggy. Also, there is a link to some demo apps for AIR.

Although I haven’t given AIR a try yet on my Incredible I have to say that if Adobe wants to get their point across that they are still in the internet media creation game, they need to pick up the pace. It’s actually sort of unbelievable that there isn’t a final version of AIR by now for Android considering that Android is open source and the barrier to entry for any app is somewhat low.

Anyways, if you want to check it out, head over to DroidLife and download it. Remember this is an early build so nothing is guaranteed to work.
