Mobile and Internet in India
Mobiles are something which we now take for granted to call anyone. I remember the days when I thought who the heck will pay Rs300+ rental and then Rs16 /min for receiving or making calls as airtime charges. Obviously the call charges were separate. Who thought that things will reach this far that at Rs175 rentals, you would get 300 mins calling free. Its truly amazing.
Another thought that I had not very long back actually was that I had written on how my mobile should look like here. There were a few people who thought that its entirely impossible to achieve what I was wanting. But then today there was this story on CNET that talked about Toshiba coming out with an amazingly fast 1GHz smartphone. Well, I am not surprised by it. But what I am surprised at is that it runs the crappy Windows Mobile. It sure could have done better with Android or Symbian. Windows Mobile, duh. Dude I would need multi-touch, just to make sure I can give the three finger salute of Ctrl+Alt+Del.
So I have a significantly fast processor on the mobile, an 800 x 480 resistive touch screen is also there for u to have fun with. I am sure this is just the beginning and I have great faith in Android and probably that would be the choice of platform which will achieve what I dreamt of some years back
