A cheap, tiny, underclocked phone that gets the job done. Not as popular in the West, but it's big in China, Africa, and Italy. Uses plain ol' AOSP Froyo.

It's quite common as a low end phone throughout the world, with a lot of development effort (a rarity on such a little old phone) though apparently not enough to warrant an XDA board.
