Adobe AIR for Android announced
Adobe has announced AIR for Android. Adobe AIR will let you publish ActionScript 3 projects to run as native applications (.apk) for the Android OS. These AIR applications can be delivered to Android devices through Android application stores such as the Android Market.

According to Adobe,
Developers can write new code or reuse existing web content to build AIR applications for the Android OS. Because the source code and assets are reusable across the Flash Platform runtimes, Adobe AIR and Flash Player, it also gives developers a way to more easily target other mobile and desktop environments.
The company also says that you can sign-up now to participate in the AIR for Android prerelease program.

Adobe quoted a developer as a sort of testimonial on its site:
“It took about four days for us to make the AIR Android version, and 1/2 of those days were spent getting up to speed with the Android tools.

"Code reuse? You bet. Both the desktop and mobile clients use the same interfaces and api calls to interact with server-side infrastructure (which includes our web services platform and our FMS 3.5 servers).

"Two different clients and one server interface; we love AIR!”
