And in what seems to be the beginning of a disturbing trend in tablet debuts, the A500 will support Flash eventually, but won’t ship with it. Motorola’s Xoom, which debuted six weeks ago, also launched without Flash, though a beta release is currently available for Honeycomb in the Android Market.

Why is the name so terrible? The price is great, just below the iPad, but where are the size specs for thickness — what’s the battery life. Lots of questions on this thing. All Best Buy’s pre-order page says is: “Weighs only 1.7 lbs. and measures just 0.5″ thin”

No listing of battery life, which is never a good sign.
