Did any developer (interested in Mediatek based phones) tried to contact Mediatek regarding support policy for their SOCs ? The strange thing is that, although most mediatek based phones target Asia (China, India, etc), virtually all asian developers around xda-forum seems to target high end international phone models based on more widely spread SOCs. I wonder if this is related to poor SOC support from Mediatek or just poor phones quality. Probably first one

When I'll have enough posts to be able to post in devel section of the forum I'll try to contact Bruno Martin ( bgcngm ), the guy who released customized roms for both ZTE V970 and Huawei U8836D, maybe he have more details about Mediatek and this 2 phones.
