Adobe Flash Player and AIR Beta Sign-ups Open


Shortly after the news that we’d be getting Adobe’s long-sought Flash Player 10.1 some point in the second half of this year, Adobe announced that they’re accepting public beta sign-ups for users who want to get a taste of the premium multimedia driver early on. Sign-up is quick and easy – all you have to do is go to Adobe’s site and sign-up for an account. After that, you just opt-in to each beta separately and you’re golden (the betas have not launched yet, though, but you’ll be notified by email when they do). You can find the sign-up page for AIR 2.0 here, while the Flash 10.1 beta can be had here.


I’m much more interested in the AIR beta than I am Flash. For those that don’t know what AIR is, Adobe has created a multi-platform framework that allows quick and easy development of many different types of applications across a good chunk of platforms. Their “develop one and deploy to all” strategy makes it perhaps the most attractive platform for developers (and has quickly become the platform of choice for things such as desktop Twitter apps, eBay apps, and so forth).

I’m not sure if we’ll be seeing a relatively smooth transition to the Android platform (nor am I sure this will even be destined for phones initially: the current offering of AIR apps would seem suitable exclusively for tablets) but it’s worth getting excited about anyway. I’ve signed up, how about you?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  5. Mee too, thanks for the heads up.

  6. bml, someone cut the middle part of an N1 out and put the top and bottom part together.
    on the right side you can clearly see the line where it was cut(big difference in shades of gray)
    when they where done with that they pasted the adobe air and flash logo’s where the screen was supposed to go.

  7. just for fun, i recreated the image.
    ended up being slightly higher res. (editable PNG, fireworks’s version of PSD) (JPG, showing they could’ve saved a few more kb’s AND get better quality.

    note: i also fixed the transition line, because i squashed the center instead of removing it.

  8. Wow thedicemaster, thanks for the explanation…

  9. Can the other devices sign up?

  10. Where in the heck is the sign up page?
