re: Mobile Strategy In Emerging Markets: 10 Tips
I was intrigued at the divergence between huge use of mobile by consumers, but applications that can't support mobile. Do people think companies in places like India will get their applications mobilized by the time inexpensive smart phones transform that market?

re: Mobile Strategy In Emerging Markets: 10 Tips
