Sure, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for Google Android handsets isn’t due out until the second half of the year. But Adobe apparently doesn’t want you to forget that it is coming.

The company launched a signup page for the beta… or rather, a page where you can sign up to be notified when the beta is available for download. You’ll need to either create or already have an Adobe account to sign up.

Adobe has also launched a page where you can sign up to be notified when Adobe AIR for Android beta is available. Adobe AIR is a cross-platform environment that allows developers to create apps that can run on Windows, Mac, Linux, and soon Android.

These apps tend to be internet capable programs such as desktop Twitter clients, and Adobe AIR for Android should make it easier for developers to write cross-platform apps without targeting just one of the 4 or 5 big smartphone operating systems on the market.

Something tells me that the the AIR platform will be available about the same time as Adobe Flash for Android… in the second half of 2010.
