I wonder if it may have something to do with the fact that we went ahead to develop JS APIs even though everyone was saying that it would destroy the mobile Web because we weren't taking then-feature phones into account.

Mock all you want, but I wanted to clarify something here: I don't associate Opera Mini and feature phones (other's may [1]). I use Opera Mini on my iPhone 4S because it's fast and cheap (I'm on prepaid), and I like speed dial. I don't think I'm unique in this respect (though, admittedly, using it on an iPhone would put me into the the statistically insignificant category).  

Perhaps someone from Nokia can clarify if the following phones are all feature-phones (based on [1]):

Nokia 5130 XpressMusic
Nokia 2700c
Nokia C3 
Nokia X2 
Nokia 2690 
Nokia 6300 
Nokia C1 
Nokia 2330c 
Nokia 2730c 
Nokia 6303i classic (
Nokia C2
Nokia N73
Nokia N70 
Nokia E63 
Nokia 3110c 
Nokia X3 
Nokia 5230 
Nokia 6303c 

Kind regards,
