I bought a Spectrum because I like the hardware; it's a huge improvement over my old CM7 AMOLED DROID Incredible. Sure, the developers aren't here. But it's still a great phone. And I can change launchers, which eliminates its biggest weakness.
I buy phones based on what they ARE, not on what they "should" become. If the Spectrum never gets CM9, I'll still be satisfied with the phone I DO have, not disappointed in the phone it should have become.
