While Adobe and Apple continue to have their little tiff, that isn't stopping Adobe from moving on to other smartphone OS platforms, notably ones that are growing at a steady rate. Enter the development of Adobe AIR's native Android app.

Still in beta mode, the Adobe AIR for Android program will let users develop .apk files for the Android OS from ActionScript 3 projects. In turn, these applications could potentially be put up for sale in the Android Market.

If you're interested in participating in a trial group, sign up with Adobe now. This should be available to the masses some time later this year. Otherwise, check out some of Adobe's videos on how to develop Android apps with the Flash Builder and Flash Professional CS5.
