Has anyone done a survey of which mobile devices support Unicode and
complex script rendering?

In India it is easy to buy a very cheap basic mobile phones that
supportDevanagari - and can send and receive SMS messages in Devanagri
script. But it it seems, with one or two exceptions, most so called
"smart phones" available in the market have no working support for
complex script rendering. If you want to send and receive Indic
script text it seems a basic mobile phone costing about 1,000 rupees
is much better than most "smart" phones costing more than 25,000
