PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It all started with Apple/TechCrunch blogger M.G. Siegler making a huge fuss over something he didn't understand, and while that in and of itself isn't particularly interesting, one of the outcomes of this little internet drama is a comment on Google+ (the tenth one) that so perfectly encapsulates just how important Android is for the world that I felt the need to share it with you. It's the holiday season after all.

So what you're saying is that as long as there is at minimum:

*Reliable Excess Power
*Cellular network infrastructure and/or wireless network infrastructure.
*Income to pay for above services.

Android is revolutionary.

What other caveats must be met to jump on this revolution?


The power use by phones is negligible - a few milliwatts.

The infrastructure is relatively cheap to build.

The cost of mobile phone services in the developing world is typically extremely cheap - less than 1 cent per minute for prepaid phones.
