Indeed. There is no answer from Nokia to the $100 Android phones like the ZTE Blade. The Asha phones are toys and little more than feature phones with touchscreens.

Expecting decent $40 Android phones in a year is however a little optimistic.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/23-99-possibly-cheapest-a... - it's possible to buy a phone for 45GBP already. It's not quite $40, but it's getting very close.

And these will be fairly decent phones with a recent enough Android version (not some Android 1.6 crap from Walmart).

Indeed you can get that Huawei U8180 (Ideos X1) of yours and other non-decent Android devices for cheaper, e.g. here is an eBay seller who asks only 29.49 GBP for his Android smartphones:

What I'd call decent is at least WVGA screen, 512 MB RAM, ability to install CM10 for advanced users - all of which the Blade satisfies but the ultra-cheap Androids don't.

The latest CM version for the Blade is 7.2, and I see no sign that later versions will be ported.
