Hello! Mobile is a theme dear to me. I strongly believe this is where the future lies. The series this week will be about mobiles and the use of them across the world. I gave you a glimpse of the U.S. market earlier, via How American Adults Use Mobile Phones, courtesy of Flowtown. Today's post is a slide deck by Yiibu, called Sowing The Seeds - Unexpected Journeys Through The Digital Divide. It takes us on a worldwide trip around the use and status of mobiles, as well as the underlying trends and factors.
