There is never enough time to do it right the first time, but there is always enough time to do it over.
Seems so horribly true for software.

Re: So they...
All the sci-fi I have seen suggest that the first thing AI will do is world domination; I suspect that it will just slack off like most human beings (and cats!) .
After all what drive would it have for domination?

I think that we are talking about the Lindt Excellence 99% territory rather than Tesco's plain
If the battery life is good (like weeks between recharges) it might take off.
And the earpieces- who the hell wants to look like they have a hearing aid or like Agent Smith from the matrix?
There are large areas with little cloud cover:try the Karoo or Namibian desert
-but the problem is that very very few people live there.
Cell phones: very commonly
Sir, I bear a rhyme excelling. In mystic force and magic spelling. Celestial sprites elucidate. All my own striving can't relate

There are large areas of semi-desert that are wanted for the SKA radio telescope array project where we DO NOT WANT drones saturating our receivers.
It sounds similar to the Afristar concept where the majority of the intended audience could not afford the receivers and did not particularly want the product. Those who can afford it picked up satellite TV, like DSTV (I see their dishes even on some shacks).
Re: Totally agree about WTFapp
Yes, with children on a different continent SMS gets expensive
However it is basically an IRC, so hardly innovative.
Some things are unique and cannot be replaced - hence no insurance
Others are an almost certain catastrophe coming - hence no one will insure them

So why is it smaller?
I am puzzled about why (with extra libraries) it ends up smaller
Good luck in trying to enforce any of that 'designer' stuff in the rest of the world. I suggest that what will happen is that overseas factories will copy it perhaps minor tweaks.

They would need to be on crack to want to get into teaching
