Adobe AIR will receive an update today along with Flash 10.1 and both are meant to prepare devices for the arrival of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).  We broke the news on Flash possibly hinting at new Android OS compatibility over the weekend, but it appears as if AIR is on the same path.  Oh, and the Adobe AIR team blog actually confirmed it outright…  

With the anticipation of the Android Gingerbread OS update, we will be delivering an update release for AIR for Android (2.5.1) that will be available on Android Market on Tuesday November 9th. This new release will address compatibility issues and be optimized to run on the Gingerbread OS update…

…In cases where a user receives the Gingerbread OS update before updating to the AIR 2.5.1 runtime, they will receive a native dialog on load stating that the application has quit unexpectedly and your application will fail to load. We’d like your assistance in preventing end users from this type of experience on their device.

Ready for some Gingerbread action?  Scott is our Nexus One guru, so we’ll have plenty of 2.3 talk once it hits!
