The man has clearly lost the plot.
I have in my pocket right now a midrange (cost nothing to upgrade), year-old N79, which is at least the second generation of its line to come with Flash on. OK, sure, it's flash lite, but it works ok for most purposes, and it's better than nothing.
It doesn't even count as a proper smartphone if you take away the symbian capability - the CPU is a bit weak, no touchscreen or hi-rez, etc. But it has the adobe code. What is Jobs on about? Its like every day is another opportunity to lead those who actually listen to him into an alternative fantasy world that doesn't actually exist.
After all, half the entries in your "top 10 early iPad apps" were things I can already do on this selfsame phone about as well - either they're apps coded to let you access data on websites that the Pad can't natively manage but most other mobile net devices can, or fairly simplistic things that are covered by built-in programs or hardware on the majority of non-apple systems (and at least a couple more, i think pay-for? apps did nothing more than free downloadable java widgets I already have). Very disappointing. I think the device itself is - or at least could be - an awesome evolution of the Tablet PC idea into something genuinely useful and user friendly (instant on, bespoke OS/UI etc) if only they'd open it up a little more, bring in the ability to use a few other entrenched standards rather than pretending they don't exist/aren't important (the funny thing being that Adobe is something of a big deal on Apple's desktop machines), and stop more-or-less lying about everything in their adverts and marketing.
I mean, doctors are already looking at it as a great diagnostic tool (with an achingly expensive custom app), and there are other examples of very clever niche use... and the remaining apps on your list, whilst fairly useless, sure are pretty and fun-looking. But whilst it's crippled and having to make do with pretty much an extra app for every worthwhile website, yet being pushed as a panacea to all society's problems, I can't see me getting one.
