From The Guardian:
In a world with more mobile devices than people, portable technology has the potential to transform lives. Mobile access to the internet is helping to power social and economic mobility all over the world. As experts in mobile communications convene in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress from 2 March, using mobile as a tool for inclusive growth will be high on the agenda.
