mobile we come 34 Comments

Report shows that Africa has 12% of the new cell phone subscribers in the world, tallying 20 million more cell phone users in first Quarter of 2010.

What’s actually more fascinating to me is that they’re saying that the continent now has close to 50% penetration; meaning that there’s a lot of growth left to be had as equates to the rest of the planet.

I don’t know much about the internet phone usage but I did hear that South Africa has a service similar to 3G of AT&T.

Also smart phones are cheaper in Africa! Or so I’ve heard!

I am always confused when someone say mobile instead of cell phone. Read this interesting article about how phones end up in Africa.

... In any cluster of mobile phone shops you find someone who offers repair services. … People then come asking if other things can be fixed, and over time there’s an increased awareness of how to fix different models.”

    Interesting. That puts India and China at ~4% growth rate in their respective populations, and around 2% for ‘Africa’. Assuming it’s happening wide and fast in China and India, and assuming the majority of Africa’s numbers aren’t coming out of South Africa, that’s a pretty decent growth rate.

    This is also assuming we’re pro cell phone usage in Africa, which I am … ;)

    Virtually all of what you say happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This particular piece truly did switch the light on for me as far as this subject matter goes. However there is 1 issue I am not necessarily too comfy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the issue, allow me observe just what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Very well done.
