The Economist: Mobile Marvels

Interesting special report in the Economist a couple of weeks ago — I’m forever behind in my reading — on the spread of mobile phones in emerging markets. 
"In places with bad roads, unreliable postal services, few trains and parlous landlines, mobile phones can substitute for travel, allow quicker and easier access to information on prices, enable traders to reach wider markets, boost entrepreneurship and generally make it easier to do business."
It’s another fine example of the transformative power of great technology.
