Google and Adobe, Sitting in a Tree

Google VP of Android engineering Andy Rubin, in a weblog post for Adobe:

Google believes that developers should have their choice of tools and technologies to create applications. By supporting Adobe AIR on Android we hope that millions of creative designers and developers will be able to express themselves more freely when they create applications for Android devices. More broadly, AIR will foster rapid and continuous innovation across the mobile ecosystem.

Google is happy to be partnering with Adobe to bring the full web, great applications, and developer choice to the Android platform.

Translation: “We’re allied against iPhone OS.”
