Does that $20-$30 include a contract?  Because if so, I know plenty of people who are unwilling to tag an extra $15-$30 on to their cell plan for data.

If Google is selling these for $20-$30 without a contract, then color me surprised!

Neither would I, and I already own an android smartphone.  I use a prepaid service for $25 per month, paid mostly in bitcoins.
They were talking about reselling for $20-30.  This means used.  I don't think that used phones usually come with a contract, do they?

I wouldn't know.  Do they?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

A quick google search showed lots of sites selling used phones without contracts.  Most looked like $50-100, so a year from now will be cheaper and likely on track with google's estimates.

I'm still interested in the ellet, but I definitely see cheap smartphones with apps as major competition.

Maybe.  Still think that the contract thing is a red herring.  I don't have a contract, but still pay a monthly fee for data access.  I suppose that I could just stop using the thing as a phone altogether and simply use the wifi radio for access, and I would have a pretty good mini-tablet  computer to do such things with, but that doesn't mean that I predict that we will start seening used android phones being used as bitcoin clients in Africa anytime soon.

UPDATE: Just wanted to let everyone know that I've been spending the past month preparing materials, giving demonstrations and discussing with investors. There are several investors in Silicon Valley and the UK that are interested in the Ellet and we may in fact be able to cut our production time to half of what I had originally quoted. To be safe though, I won't make any firm announcements just yet. I have created another thread to offer the community to be a part of the investment process and thus a part of the profits, rather than relying entirely on angel investors that seem to run the world around us.

Will update with thread link when posted.

Cheers.

How long could a Matthew minute be for the rest of the world?
Let's try:
Bitcoin Magazine: "weeks" -> "months"
Ellet: "next week" -> "not anytime soon"
So are are there any mathematicians here that can compute this?

Sorry, right when I was about to post the thread that took 20 or so minutes to write, I was asked to handle it privately instead.

UPDATE: Through continuous difficulties with our current design and manufacturing manager in Shenzen, we've decided to part ways and I am inviting another well known manufacturing specialist from Smith company in Shenzen. I'll update here when it seems prudent to. It's still looking like about a 4-6 month wait on this before you'll be able to order, but I'll try to push the investors a bit more so we can speed that up.

Cheers

Current valuation for the company, assets and resources is $900,000 USD as of September 10th, 2012.
Cool, you can see into the future! Can you read my palm, too?

Wow, shows you how overworked I am these days. That's the date of availability for the Bitcoin Magazine in Barnes and Noble  Roll Eyes

Fixed.
