Topic: Impact Analysis
12:44:19 [Steph]
12:44:53 [Steph]
betty: based on itu framework for ict readiness
12:45:06 [betty]
Wider mobile networks & cheaper mobile Internet tariff (mobile Web readiness) --> more mobile Web use --> more job offer for entrepreneurs or more knowledge resource for students, but more expense to purchase handsets & air time, more business opportunities for people selling handsets & airtime, more opportunities for mobile web application development (mobile Web impact, case studies) --> more mobile Web programming training (mobile Web readiness capacity),
12:46:43 [betty]
more collaboration among researchers, mobile phone industry, policy makers (mobile Web readiness)
