New Mouth-Watering Flash And AIR-Enabled Tablet Prototype Pop Up [Video]


Ok, we really need to slow down on these tablets, now! The latest comes from a Web 2.0 event that was being held in San Francisco last night. Android wasn’t be to be left out, though, and as such, an interesting tablet device made its way to the show floor. What’s interesting about it isn’t its features or its interface, or even how it looks: these days, a tablet is a tablet is a tablet.

What made it so compelling was the fact that it was running Flash and AIR. What made it even more compelling is that it was running those technologies as smooth as butter. The first video shows’s Adobe AIR app running full screen, and the one below shows a YouTube video playing in-browser. Of course, tablets are destined to be more technically-capable than their smaller phone counterparts, but I can’t imagine that the experience would be any different on today’s high-end Androids, as well. There isn’t even a name to be had, seemingly, as the video struggles to pick up the voice of the presenter – he did, however, say “Android prototype by Adobe” – but we’ll try to drill down to get more info soon.

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. Indeed I concur. I would also jump swiftly at the chance to obtain one of these apparently marvelous devices.

  6. “Smooth as butter”? The YouTube video looked really jittery to me. No idea if it’s the source content itself or if that’s the mobile Flash experience we can look forward to.

  7. Mouth-watering is the right word. I have a feeling Apple is going to look very outdated with the iPad very soon and them leaving Flash out in my opinion is a bad move from Jobs and co.

    Count me in on one of these!

  8. That “prototype” looks like the Notion Ink ADAM.

  9. Could we be looking at the prototype of the tablet google is moving so quickly to put out? As id nexus one version of tablet?

  10. @Dave – I guess some folk are so anxious for Flash they’ll take anything. I’m hoping Google pulls the rug out from under them on the video front with VP8. And after video I really don’t see the point in Flash.

  11. Ok, so all we constantly see are “prototypes”.

    When the hell are these companies actually going to start mass producing these things?

  12. @Phil: 85 of the top 100 websites use it… Thats a pretty good reason to incorporate flash.

  13. @Dave… there might be something wrong with your computer or it’s payback? On my computer that youtube video looks very smooth, I don’t see any issues.

  14. The problem with Steve Jobs is that he things everyone in the world only watches YouTube. I have an iPad and wish it had flash and it’s truly makes this device pointless. I bought it because i wanted to see what the big deal. It is a nice device, i can’t knock on apple for that. I love android and i love parts of the iPhone os. I’m no longer playing this stupid, I hate apple because I love android, game. That’s for kids. I love technology. Period. Yes i am very tech savvy and i love gadgets and I’ll get the product that best fits me. The iPad is a great device, hardware wise, the screen is gorgeous and the battery life his impressive. Is it the best? Not even close. Flash would help but android will eventually be the winner. Until google gets it together and releases a tablet that is better than the iPad, shouldn’t be that hard, I’m sticking with this thing and using my nexus for flash content.

  15. Me want 5
