WIFI + Mobile Phone = ?

I'm back from a couple of weeks away in Mumbai/Pune, India and Nairobi, Kenya.

A big geek takeaway for me was the pervasiveness of both mobile phones and WIFI.

I cannot help feeling that some synthesis of these two is the real platform for billions of the world's people.

The other big geek takeaway is that computers are expensive everywhere. A sumptuous meal for 5 comes in at 40 dollars (at least 200 dollars in Ireland) but a desktop PC is about the same as it is in Ireland.
