Myracer, a Korean OEM, has released a gaming console that is entirely Flash based.  The devices is based on 192 MHz ARM, and has 1 GB of RAM. According to this blog, the screen is 2.4 inches and is 320X240. It is not clear if full desktop Flash player is available of the device, but my guess is its not.

XPERIA X1 Hands-On by WMExperts I came accross this post on mobiletechaddicts.com. It says that the Flash Lite plugin is available for Xperia X1 and works well with Opera.
