Adobe Air + Android = ^_^

Android announced today that Adobe Air will now be available for download on the Android market. You can read the official release here. And if you would like a bit more of a technical overview you can find it here. On an unrelated note news was also released today regarding Microsoft's interest in purchasing Adobe sparking a very sharp rise in Adobe's stock. I can't help but wonder how this would effect the already fragile relationship between Apple and Adobe.

If this purchase does go though I would speculate that Apple would add some additional design oriented software titles their already popular Final Cut. What could some fun titles be?
Photoshop -> iPhoto
Illustrator -> iDraw
Dreamweaver -> iPage
Flash -> (nothing)
Flex -> uh well you can just get the SDK for free!

And of course every icon would have a fantastic highlight/reflection.
