Motorola DROID 2 Flash ad

Motorola is no stranger when it comes to crafting snarky ads touting the abilities of their handsets compared to their competitors (or should I say, competitor).  Today Moto took out another full-page ad in the New York Times that promotes the DROID 2 and its ability to handle Flash content.  Adapting the familiar "There's an app for that" tagline, I'd say it's pretty obvious who Moto is targeting with this latest promotion.  So now that there have been Motorola ads that attack both the iPhone's antenna problems and lack of flash, I wonder what Moto will go after next.  Perhaps an ad for the DROID 2's proximity sensor?

Android has certainly become the home for users who demand Flash when it comes time to browse on their handsets, as several high profile Android phones have Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 available for download.  Some users have found a way to hack Flash capability onto the iPad and iPhone, but it doesn't look like official Flash support will be coming directly from Apple any time soon.  Meanwhile, there have been varied reports on how just well Flash content actually works on Android handsets.  So now we pose the question to you, Android owners: how smoothly does your handset handle Flash content?
