As part of its decision to show increased support for Android (and, you know, stick it to Apple), Adobe has demonstrated Flash running seamlessly on a tablet running Google's mobile OS.
At the Web 2.0 conference, Adobe is cheering for Android with demonstrations on Android devices, free Android phones for its employees and now, a demonstration of Flash running on an Android tablet powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2.
Zedomax reports seeing a range of devices running Flash at the Adobe booth at Web 2.0 but among them was a tablet running Android 2.1.
"It runs Adobe’s Flash and Air apps flawlessly. That was the first time I saw Adobe’s Air apps running on a tablet and totally impressed by how it ran. And now I can understand why Apple wants to ban Flash and other Adobe products completely from their iPhones and iPads, because it’s rather incredible technology.
The prototype that was demo-ed at the Web 2.0 Expo show was showing the current workings of the Wired magazine’s Google Tablet app. Certainly, it looks like Google Android tablet will make a big impact on worldwide tablet sales."
Confirmation of the Tegra 2's presence inside the tablet shown in the video below comes via Engadget:
"It is indeed Tegra 2. We worked closely with Adobe to show how next-gen Tegra can bring the complete web to tablets at Web 2.0," Nvidia said in an emailed comment."You can expect to start seeing Tegra 2 devices appearing this summer, with plenty on the way in the third and fourth quarters of the year."
