Just as aFriday, Adobe Systems took the opportunity to tout its own programming technology that in some ways is in opposition.
Adobe's Flash technology is ubiquitously plugged in to PC browsers, and the company is trying to spread a related technology called AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) for standalone applications. But.
Adobe wishes it were otherwise, but meanwhile, it offers other options for programmers: Flash Pro CS5, which lets programmers repackage AIR apps so they run on the iPhone and now iPad. There are 100 applications written this way in the Apple App store that run on the iPhone and iPad. The repackaged AIR approach will work on Android, BlackBerry, and other devices in the future, Adobe said.
And Adobe also touted Dell's 12-inch Latitude XT2, a tablet PC with a 12-inch screen, and an upcoming tablet with a 5-inch screen. Both run "a broad variety of Flash content," Adobe said.
