I will stand by my earlier statements, which so far have been pretty spot on... but we'll have to see once Gingerbread comes out. If it has the functionality in its UI that WebOS (palm pre) had.. it will be a clearcut winner... but that is speculation that we'll have to wait a few more months on.
As for Flash on Android.. the only disadvantage I have seen is that legacy apps weren't BUILT for mobile and therefore can have clunky interfaces.. otherwise I have yet to have a performance issue... of course I am using the latest hardware over a 4G or wifi connection... I won't vouch for trying to shove Flash on older/slower hardware.
1) No one says app-per-site is the only alternative. Many websites accessible thru mobile safari support flash alternatives.
2) You are definitely hyping some vaporware, in that you're speculating the UI designer of the Pre will singlehandedly unify Google's Android. Evidence not yet seen.
3) If you always have to use the latest hardware, mobile flash isn't going to adopt.
