Impact of mobiles in Africa Harry Dugmore, professor at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa. He spoke about how the massive uptake of mobiles Africa had led some to hope the technology would help democracy flourish. The technological environment in Africa has evolved, starting off with mobiles with small screens, slow speeds and sky-high subscriptions. This was still the situation in many places, with only one of every 100 phones in Africa being an iPhone. The result was a focus on SMS services to keep people inform and in touch. Mobile technology is moving towards better speeds, more competition and more powerful phones, said Dugmore. But costs are still high and net access can be intermittent. Some of the biggest changes,, have been the provision of free access to Facebook and Wikipedia on mobiles. Facebook zero means anyone can access Facebook on a mobile, even if they don’t have any credit.
