WIndows Mobile is confusing!

Hi, everyone. I'm a verizon wireless customer and my contract will be expiring soon. I will be renewing my contract and buying my first smartphone but I'm rather confused with the windows mobile OS. First, I prefer the new windows mobile 6.1 but which phones run the new os? I see plenty that run WM6 but say nothing about 6.1 and, as far as I can tell, the only availible upgrade to 6.1 is on the samsung i760. Secondly, I want to be able to effectively browse the web. I'm looking for access to flash-enabled websites. I read that there will be a flash plug-in for internet explorer mobile. Will this just be a free download and will it work on the same websites the full version of flash on PCs work? Lastly, can I edit documents using office mobile on WM6 standard or do I need professional for that? Thanks a lot!

The differences between WM 6.0 & 6.1 are few and I wouldn't be overly concerned about getting a phone w/ version 6.0. By all means, do your homework before you make your final decision.
