Follow this Adobe employee if you want to know more about mobile and the packager for iPhone and for Android. He did a great presentation on Monday. The support for the retina display on the iPhone 4 is coming to AIR soon, stay tuned! In the meantime, the workaround is to use TOP_LEFT and SCALE (to true) so that it works both on 3G iPhones and on iPhone 4s (that’s what we did on our surf app, shown in this blog on another post).

The Galaxy tablet from Samsung is super fast and responsive, but not that big.

BlackBerry will launch the PlayBlook tablet soon, and we were pretty impressed to see that it is all AIR (the UI, touch, apps, etc). Talking to Arno (Director of Engineering of AIR), he told us that only a low level part isn’t (that uses a technology that was already present in cars, boats etc). It’s great to see AIR enabling such a great experience on such a great device. Can’t wait to get ours!

Want to create games in Flash? Check the PushButton engine. It’s an open source game engine used by tons of very popular games. It will save you a lot of headaches:
