According to a survey some time ago, the number of cell phone users in the year 2000 were around one billion. As as of last year, this percentage has increased fivefold, and this tremendous increase in users is mainly recorded in the underdeveloped countries. There was this time when only some members of the elite class had access to this luxury. Now every other kid has a cell phone. From a thirteen year old to a ninety year old, life is unimaginable without a cell- or smart-phone.

Mobile phone companies are benefiting hugely from this sudden boom in business. This upswing of cell phones has led the poor countries to generate revenue. It has made their lives faster and easier, making businesses more successful and more efficient.

But where will it all go?
That’s what I’m wondering lately.

Will computers and automated communication ultimately make human life redundant?
It may sound strange, but over time, I believe it will.
And although we will still be here, I have no idea what we will we be doing.

Poverty is instigated by the lack of the right resources, lack of access to markets, hospitalisation and an ignorance of the current trends and requirements. But these days we have cell phones that help the poor to stay in touch with the current trends and give them a better shot at moving with the world, and to benefit from its progress.

Living in a third world country should not hamper an individual from making the best of his abilities. Cell phones are now less expensive than they have ever been, and the United Nations have taken huge steps in this respect.

The United Nations millennium villages project provided cell phones to villages across 10 poor South African countries and then noticed that with the increase in cell phone usage the country’s GDP increased. This boom in the mobile industry has taken the world to the next level. The poor and the rich alike, are benefiting from this ingenious invention.
