Well we all knew this was coming! Apple has today issued a rare rebuttal to Adobe product manager Mike Chambers’ blog post about Flash and Apple yesterday, in which he said that Adobe would be turning their attention to developing tools for Apple rivals such as Google Android.
Ouch! This one looks like it’s going to run and run, as CNET also reported yesterday that Google are not exactly being shy about their involvement with Adobe either, according to the following quote from a blog post by Andy Rubin, vice president of engineering for the Android effort:
“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.”
