Mobile is a theme dear to me. I strongly believe this is where the future lies. The series this week will be about mobiles and the use of them across the world.
I gave you a glimpse of the U.S. market earlier, via How American Adults Use Mobile Phones, courtesy of Flowtown.

Today’s post is a slide deck by Yiibu, called Sowing The Seeds – Unexpected Journeys Through The Digital Divide. It takes us on a worldwide trip around the use and status of mobiles, as well as the underlying trends and factors.

To find out more about 0.facebook referred upon on slide 96, you can read this Search Engine Watch article: Free ‘0.Facebook’ Mobile Platform Launches for Users In Poorer Countries.

Very special thanks to Rudy De Waele, aka @mtrends who made me discover this presentation. An entrepreneur at dotopen, Rudy is focusing on mobile 2.0 and beyond. He is the founder of MobileMonday Barcelona, Mobile 2.0 Europe, Mobile Premier Awards and Mobile Sunday.
