I came across an article that will be published tomorrow in the NY
Times about cellphones. It is extremely long and very informative
about the future marketing of cellphones globally. Nokia is trying
hard to be a leader by examining cultural needs of potential
customers. The future ideal global phone suggested and described near
the end of the article is remarkably close to the Apple iPhone in its
current design. Go figure.
Can the Cellphone Help End Global Poverty? http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/13/ma...pagewanted=all
or a shorter link version of that URL I just created http://NYTimes-cellphone.notlong.com
Now for all those nut cases that hang out on Usenet.
This article is not my idea but the thoughts of NY Times and Nokia.
Read it and enjoy or hate it for what it is. It may expand your view
of how cellphones affect others around the world. Will cell phones
end poverty, I don't think so but they may clearly alter the speed of
future events in currently unforeseen ways.
