The Ascend came at a perfect moment in time for what it was, but I think people have moved on to bigger and better things and this is just not enough of an upgrade. I also don't think any devs will bother latching on to this phone to develop for. There are too many similar devices on the market now that I don't see the point. People need to realize how fortunate the Ascend community is that Isaac picked this phone up. Is there another Isaacj87 out there for the Ascend 2? You never know, but I wouldn't count on it.

All of this is true & makes sense.The only challenge that I see to entice aftermarket development is to upgrade it to ICE CREAM SANDWICH, if at all possible ........
