At Adobe Android summit in San Francisco, Adobe announced that Adobe Flash 10.1 for Android on Nexus One devices has now left beta and is now available for download on Android Marketplace. However, devices including HTC Desire and EVO running Android 2.2 cann't update to 10.1 as the devices already running 10.1 beta pre-installed.

Also, that the company plans to bring support for Adobe Air software to Android devices in the Q4 of this year. Adobe Air is a cross-platform environment which allows developers to create rich internet applications using the likes of Flash or Flex and run them as desktop applications easily.

This news comes as Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen was quoted as saying the company has "moved on" from the Apple-Adobe wars which saw Apple refuse to bring support for Flash to their iOS operating system which runs on devices including the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, labelling it amongst other things an outdated technology.

"Apple have made their choice. We've made ours and we've moved on," Narayen reportedly told The Telegraph.
