yes, you are right. One more thing is in my mind, will China produce
enough Calypso-based phones forever? I found 10 MTK-based phones on
the market, but not even one TI-based.The problem is that I cannot
make any assumptions about amount of work needed to do the l1 task,
that's why I asked on the list.

[ One more thing, what about making a page on Wiki that lists various
phone models with used chips? I can add what I have found so far. ]

Can you point me right direction? I have found some MTK code in git,
but there is no documentation at all, etc.
