The Flash Wars continue: Adobe promotes its Flash 10.1 and Adobe AIR for tablet publishing

With pre-orders about to be accepted for Apple's Flashless new iPad tablet, this would be a good time to remind publishers what they could be missing it neither Flash, nor Adobe's AIR platform will work on the iPad.

Here is a video, admittedly a bit biased as it was produced by Adobe, that promotes the company's new Flash products.  The video features an interview with Neil Trevett, Vice President of Mobile Content for NVIDIA Corp., a leading graphics technology company out of Santa Clara, Calif.

This video, along with Wired magazine's demo of their tablet publishing vision which uses Adobe AIR, can be seen on the TNM's YouTube Channel.  (Warning: the featured video has a rather loud soundtrack to it.) Last week, TNM reported that using Adobe AIR and its conversion tools could be a way around the lack of Flash support in Apple's iPad.
