ACCESS has just said recently that we will see ACCESS based phones outside the US first. Especially if it is a non-Asian rollout (aren't they based in Japan or China?), it means to me they are having trouble getting any phone makers in the US to use the OS.
I think I saw that at Ed Hardy's article at Brighthand, but not sure.
Anyway, I fear that ACCESS could turn out to be similar to Cobalt in terms of getting it on phones.... no phones sold.
Btw, I have some shiny ads about a Cobalt phone that was apparently just about ready to ship before Cobalt died, again in Asia I think. I'll have to scan them and share it here when I get a chance for nostalgic purposes.
