Multitude of Android tablets expected this year
While Adobe does not have any Apple products on the show floor at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, the company is showing off prototypes of upcoming Android-based tablets. The Google Android Tablet, even in a pre-release form, is capable of running applications and features based on Adobe's Flash and Air codes.
Several videos from the expo, posted on Zedomax, show the Android multi-touch tablet running a beta version of a Wired app and Flash on YouTube. The tablet is said to run Flash and Air "flawlessly," without any apparent performance issues.
An Adobe representative suggests there will be a multitude of Android-based tablets arriving on the market by the end of the year, with most slated for the holidays. The company also expects Flash to be supported on certain Android smartphones sometime this summer.
