They aren't trying to sell this idea to the western countries where people can pay several hundreds of US dollars for a phone.

They are going where lower than where Android can go, the people that currently can only afford a feature phone.

The same people that don't have a creditcard to buy apps.


That's great. I was commenting on their stated goal of low resource utilization, while using a language and framework with terrible performance. Real world performance. Not Microbenchmarks.

Carrier billing is a great thing bringing paid purchases to more people in more places.
