Can browse WAP 2.0?

I agree that too many key features are missing from this phone to make it workable.

So what do people think of this Android-but-not type of phone? I think it's fascinating, personally. Google has put this powerful software out there, as open-source, so manufacturers can do whatever they want with it. It's a great way to quickly and easily put out a very powerful feature phone, leveraging existing in-house talent for developing Android hardware and software.

I wonder why we don't see more phones like this. It's win-win. Manufacturers can make much better feature phones for far less development cost. It makes it easier for carriers, too, who can put their custom carrier apps on phones like this, re-using most of the code they use for their full Android phones.
I get that it would make for an extremely robust feature phone, but I don't really get the purpose in removing features like the Android market. Is it so they can put cheaper hardware into the device without having to worry about compatibility? Or doe...
