Sites optimised for mobile flash
Here is list of sites not optimised for small screen sizes, but that do support Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 for Android 2.2. These sites will work on phones, but you will have to pan and zoom like with any other regular site. The biggest drawback with these sites (besides being optimised for a tablet or full-sized computer screen) is that if Flash content isn't scaled to fit small phones and video and animation could drain your phone's battery fast.
