SDForum International SIG - December meeting
In many areas of the world, the first experience of the Internet is not through the PC but through the rapidly growing number of low cost web enabled mobile phones. Emerging markets such as India and Africa are seeing a huge growth in mobile subscribers and an increasing demand for mobile internet services. In areas with unreliable electricity, few computers and no broadband, mobile based internet access is a revolution. As compatible handsets and data charges become more affordable, what impact will mobile internet have on commerce, education, health services and community? Please join us as we discuss market trends, innovative applications, business opportunities and challenges in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
