It also doesn't support Flash, ... That's really not good for a device which is primarily meant for web surfing.

That'll be heavier, though, possibly as much as two pounds.

As for Flash, Apple always holds its reasoning close to the vest, so all we can do is speculate. Most likely speculations:
Flash is a buggy dinosaur; a cancerous scourge that needs to be eradicated from the web. Flash filled a need in first-generation browsers that no longer exists, and it's a crappy video format. The big video players (like YouTube) are migrating towards better formats such as H.264 so Flash will become increasingly irrelevant.
Just as Apple hurried along the demise of the floppy drive as a relevant format by refusing to put floppy drives in the early iMacs, so it goes with Flash.
Apps could be created within the Flash player, introducing instability, and not in line with Apple's business model.
I'd call it the Cube 2.0 as it wont sell, and be killed off in a short time...and it's not really functional.
