Adobe Employees to Get Free Android Phones

There's a lot of sour grapes between Adobe and Apple so it should surprise no one that Adobe is doing everything it can to support Android, including handing out Android phones to its employees.

CNet reports that in addition to demoing a version of Flash for Android at Google's I/O conference later this month, Adobe plans to give away Android phones running Flash to employees.

It's not yet clear which phones will be dished out to Adobe workers, but CNet sources mentioned various different HTC devices as well as the Nexus One. There's also no word on which employees will be given the phones. Adobe has more than 8,000 employees so it's likely the free swag will be limited to just the relevant departments.

    Adobe should stop supporting Photoshop and other professional tools for the Mac. Watch the "artsy" crowd cry due to the fact that Macs aren't open industry standards.

    I don't really think Apple cares about Adobe employees receiving a free product that Apple doesn't carry or support.

    That would be a nice retaliation. But I believe 40% of their CS Suite sells are from Apple users. That would be a dumb move actually, they would lose money.

    I'm wondering if the Apple employees have the same or similar benefit buying Iphones...

    Thats the best Adobe can do?

    How about doing something that actually effects the company in a negative way.
