PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is the Nokia I remember. The company just unveiled the Nokia Asha 501, which has a completely new version of the Asha software platform. Fast, responsive, stunningly great and simple hardware, and an unbeatable price ($99!). It borrows a lot from MeeGo on the N9, and overall excites me infinitely more than their Lumia offerings. I want one of these so bad.

The entire economy of places like Nigeria rely on the phone network. Smartphones are computers in these countries. They are used for everything from checking the price of fish at the local market to monitoring the health of expectant mothers.

Battery life generally isn't an issue because phones can be charged for a few cents at charging booths.
