Adobe confirmed this morning at the Flash Summit in San Francisco let it be known that Adobe AIR 2.5 will be available in the foruth quarter of 2010.
No exact dates, unfortunately, but at least it’s better than nothing. The more troubling thing, comes in the fact that Adobe isn’t talking about how AIR will be distributed, when the time comes. Whether it’s OTA for devices, or if you’ll be able to get your hands on it via the Marketplace is still unknown.
“The 2.x line has been about taking this broader,” Adobe said. “AIR is about building applications.”
Adobe noted that Nexus One owners running Android 2.2 can now see that Flash 10.1 has left beta stages and is available as a final release in the Android market. There’s no way for anyone else to check this right now as Flash 10.1 comes preinstalled for the Android 2.2 version of HTC Sense and for the Motorola Droid 2, so there’s no market entry when browsing from these devices.
