The State of Mobile - Reality Check
The Mobile Phone has revolutionised the way in which people communicate with one another. This discussion will start with a short historical overview of how an industry grew from $0 to $1.4 Trillion dollars in 40 years (probably the fastest growing industry in human history). The discussion will then present a number of changes/challenges that have been occuring in this industry in the last few years. Lastly, I hope that participants will share their experiences of how Mobile has grown and changed daily life for millions of Africans in the last decade, as well as their thoughts about areas where Mobile is still an unfullfilled promise in the continent and what needs to happen to enable it to succeed.
