Asian firms to create sub $20 cell phones?

The Inq writes a mix of Taiwanese and Chinese companies is working on very cheap cell phones:
THE INQ was somewhat puzzled to learn that Mr CDMA, Perry LaForge, was visiting the MWC show in Barcelona, only to discover that he´s here talking to handset manufacturers.

LaForge wouldn't name names, but the vendors in question are a mix of Taiwanese and Chinese firms and the aim – which LaForge expects to achieve – is to create sub $20 handsets.

Those handsets – which are aimed at developing markets like India – are obviously going to have black and white screens. But – hey – they´ll still be 3G mobile phones.
