Adobe have announced Adobe AIR is now ready to support mobile platforms such as BlackBerry. AIR leverages specific features of Flash Player 10.1, and is optimized for mobile screens. Also part of the announcement is that Adobe Flash 10.1 was made available to content providers and mobile developers worldwide, with general availability expected in the first half of 2010.
AIR supports all the necessary features for developers to make great applications. AIR includes specific functionality for features such as multitouch, gesture inputs, accelerometer, geolocation and screen orientation. Adobe hopes this will allow developers to create a single app using AIR which will be able to run on multiple platforms. While the announcement has some large implications for mobile and BlackBerry, we may not see the first apps until later this year.
