At this very moment San Francisco is playing host to the Web 2.0 Expo, which, as the name would suggest, is home to lot of discussion about where the web is heading, and the content of the web itself.

Two interesting videos that have cropped up, however, are of a prototype tablet running the Android OS. The voice in the video is a little difficult to hear, but they’re clearly showing Adobe’s AIR and Flash platforms running quite smoothly on the unnamed tablet.

As this is the first time I’ve seen an Android tablet in the wild, I can’t exactly act like I’m flabbergasted; I mean, it looks like any other model. The fact that it’s running two notoriously resource-heavy platforms so smoothly, however, does make me take note.

I was curious about the interface until I saw the below two videos – I was expecting something different than a giant version of my phone’s UI. Then again, this is just a prototype, probably just in place to show off the capabilities of Adobe products.
