PMPs are a niche item made out of budget parts with the absolute minimum amount of software effort to get out the door since there is such a small market that has to support development costs. If you're expecting a high quality product, you're going to be disappointed. For highly integrated electronics, quality comes with volume.

But then they would have to pay for development of a proprietary OS, which would mean even more corner cutting elsewhere.

Its an obsolete mass-market SOC that is natively supported by AOSP since it there was a Google sponsored device using it. That makes it really cheap, both to buy the chip and because Google has already funded the software development needed to integrate it into the OS.
