Adobe has ramped up its presence in the application space with AIR 2.5, and to help get the content out to the masses it introduced Adobe InMarket. AIR 2.5 is available on devices ranging from phones, to tablets and televisions -- including Android 2.2 devices, of course. In addition, AIR 2.5 enables hardware acceleration across all major chip makers, including Broadcom, Intel, NVIDIA, ST Micro, Trident, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm and others. Samsung is scheduled to take the lead and be the first to ship AIR preinstalled in their SmartTV line, and Acer, HTC, Motorola, RIM, and Samsung will be releasing smartphones or tablets that ship with AIR enabled. Adobe AIR 2.5 for Android is available from the Market as a free download, we'll have a link after the break.
Adobe InMarket is Adobe's foray into the publishing and distribution space. InMarket will assist developers distribute and sell their applications on many different application stores across, on various device types from Acer, Intel, and others. Android is not specifically mentioned, but I'm certain InMarket will help Android developers publish to alternative Android application stores. There's a catch, though -- Adobe will pull 30 percent off the top for the service, according to their developer connection page, but that's standard for app stores these days. The full press release, and AIR 2.5 download link are after the break.
