Samsung Galaxy Note. Why not compatible?

The Samsung Galaxy Note now seems to meet all hardware and software technical requirements of this software so will Adobe be bringing out an Android version thats compatable with it now? Ok, its technically not a tablet I know (its a Phablet - hybrid of a phone and tablet) and Adobe will say its designed for a tablet only and larger screen size ( the resolution is more important & meets requirements - its just visably smaller), but why not compatible? The Galaxy Note has an ample processor, GPU, screen resolution, IceCreamSandwich OS, stylus etc, and there are unoficial hacks available if your that way inclined which run fine on the Note, so its perfectly possible. If hackers/ coders can do it, why can or wont Adode do it officially and make the millions of Note users happy too?

 

For designers like myself it seems a major inconvenience to have to purchase yet another device if the one I already have which can do the job.

 

Come on Adobe, whats the hold up? At least explain WHY it cant supposedly support it (but we've seen it running so make it a good excuse please). Note users have had the excuse of the OS not being capable but now ICS is out, there seems to be no more excuses.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 5" is not fullfill the minimum system requirement of the screen size.

    That's the reason Adobe's Touch Apps does not support it.

    @Takashi you should update the FAQ on the site, the only requirement on the site is

     

    Adobe Touch Apps require a compatible Android tablet running Honeycomb 3.1 or later and a minimum screen resolution of 1280x800.  An Internet connection is required to transfer files with Adobe Creative Cloud.

    Thanks Slynch1234 for the information. We will update that FAQ page.

     

    Product page FAQ, and system requirement states screen size.

    http://www.adobe.com/products/proto/faq.html

    Adobe Proto requires a tablet running Android 3.1 or higher, an 8.9-inch display or larger, and a minimum screen resolution of 1280x800.   An Internet connection is required to transfer files with Adobe Creative Cloud.

    Hi zarrdave,

     

    There is not only usability issue for smaller screen size, but also technical limitation for Android platform.

    http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/screens_support.html

     

    In order to support 5" device, we have to choose "large" screen layout. That's support from 4" upto 7". Adobe Proto is not design to use like this smaller size.

     

    This is the reason Adobe Proto is not supporting 5" tablet.

     

    Thanks,

    Takashi
