ICS runs perfectly fine on 1Ghz cpu (It runs smooth on my vibrant...way better than stock Froyo build).

How is ics supposed to stop the fragmentation when companies are creating these cheap phones. Will theses phones be stuck just on the ics update forever? Soon you will have quad core processors along with dual core and then the single core 1ghz

Exactly...ICS should bring along the end of single cores, if everything goes according to the official Android manufacturers, single core Androids won't exist by 2013, but with companies like this, how is the fragmentation going to end?

I think it's a great idea! Go MediaTek! Spread the green myth! Cheap mid-range phones, decent specs... Who doesn't want that? Competition is indeed good for the market, good for the customer!
