Hmm, that must be new. I had to download it. But we bought ours in May or so, it first shipped in March or April. This is a Samsung device, it runs a modified version of Android. It is not "stock Android" like the Nexus. There are all these useless Samsung apps, too.

1. Does this support flash or not? I've read mixed things, even from 2 different users. My understanding was that Adobe no longer supports flash for new models/OS (past 4.1) but since this has 4.0, it should still support it.
2. Powerful enough to play netflix/streaming video?
1. Ours does some flash. But it doesn't work with many of the games my son wanted to play. Mobile flash was never completely compatible, and now they've ended it.
2. Yes, used CONSTANTLY at my house.

You're misunderstanding that situation.
If people are going to rail about the Apple v Samsung case in California, you may want to look into the actual facts. Samsung didn't just think the iPhone was worth imitating, they sat down and went through every minute detail of the hardware and software and attempted to copy it. Even Google wrote emails to them saying, tone it down, you can't "copy" that closely.
