Just wild guessing on my side, but I have another theory on the low price:

I compared the declared per unit value (found on zauba.com) of different Intex phones to their list price published on intex.in
For the six phones I looked at the surplus of list price compared to per unit value (CIF/CNF price) is between 78% (Aqua Music) and 99% (Aqua Q7N Pro). The surplus for the Aqua Fish is 13% only. It looks like the pricing for the Aqua Fish is extra competitive (maybe a subsidy from Jolla or Intex or both to accelerate market penetration?).

That luck of support is mainly due to the policy most social networking apps have, e.g. SFOS initially was supporting FB messenger directly, it was FB that changed the API and support then was dropped.

Reasons are irrelevant to those who want or need such services. The simple fact is, device A provides feature X, device B does not. Users have two options: get device A or manage without feature X. My preferred choice is the latter but I can hardly blame youmeego and others who go for the former.

If you are the supplier of device B and want to attract customers who want or need feature X, it is your job to make sure your device provides it. Otherwise you lose those customers. Simples. Blaming the provider of feature X is nothing but excuses.

Indeed, this boils down to 2 facts in general;
  • Those companies do not see it worthwhile to create applications to niche platforms; basically all you ever are going to get is official support for Android and iOS; all the others (SFOS, WP, Tizen, whatever) are considered as not relevant.
  • At the same time the said companies do not publish open API's to enable independent developers to create the applications. Instead they try to make it especially difficult to reverse-engineer and figure out how to connect to their services.

Sure, but that's just a longer way of saying what pagis said. It does not change the simple fact that if you "absolutely need" such a service, SFOS is not for you.

Im using FB on a daily basis with no issues on a Jolla C (browser).
Sure, the browser still has a long way to go, but at least FB is usable (on the contrary of Linkedin, but meh to Linkedin anyways).

Anyways, this is cool data, it appears there was no shipping in september tho. That sucks.

Compare it with other models (for instance replace the search terms with "intex aqua hd 5 5 with valid imei nos" ). Not bad, but still not pushing anymore?

The source appears correct. Aqua Fish phones are now "sold out" at both Snapdeal and Flipkart, Ebay still sells. So better hurry, if one likes to get one. I got mine just before my N9 fell down and went blank.
