Will adobe just pull their fingers out and make an actual release for an x64 version of Flash, and not just a buggy, badly supported test version.

I know this isn't directly relevant, but it seems that Adobe have been farting around, doing everything they can, except what the end users are asking for.

Seems like it does a lot for Multi GPU Tegra 2 Tablets with Android 3.0 but not much for anything else. What am I missing?

Uh that's about right. What you're missing is the fact that a large amount of high end devices(aka not HTC) run tegra 2 cpus.

So everyone else with a HummingBird or SnapDragon chip won't get much benefit out of this?

face it, people with a droid x or Evo or similar are already outdated. The rate at which mobile processors and GPU's are being created and used is changing very rapidly

For sure. In the mobile world, you're lucky if you can stay up to date for 3 months let alone half a year or more. But go figure they've got to be able to squeeze a lot more life out of the older chipsets. I mean the Hummingbird is no slouch and has a great GPU. The Snapdragon isn't the greatest but look at what WinPhone7 phones accomplish with it. So why so many things being left out for people "older" processors? I don't get it. You can't say it's because they're not capable.

will it be a full fledged update or just an update that you can go to android market and click up date?
I would imagine the latter, having 10.1 and 10.2 on the android market is just going to confuse people, yes people are that stupid, assuming that's what you meant of course :)
