Mobile phones in India
Winterspeak reader Newley sent me a nice article about cell phone usage in India. Even in rural villages they understand that fancy features like digital cameras just drain battery life, which is a more important feature.
Lalid Kishore, 36, said he was shopping for his sixth phone in two years, after having problems with some and trading in others for new features. Kishore said he wasn't in the market for the newest camera phone, though, because the camera would weaken the battery.I saw Jan Chipchase from Nokia talk about his mobile phone research at TED and it was very interesting -- recommended.
