eBizRadio chats to Arthur Goldstuck as he gives us his weekly round-up of the big technology and gadget releases for the last week:
Data usage in South Africa has exploded!
Arthur extrapolates -from the latest Vodafone earnings report- the direction that the telecommunications industry is headed. Results for other industry players such as MTN, Cell C and Telkom are expected to be similar in regards to cell phones and smart phones. Arthur and Nick then go through some key points that highlight these trends, afterwards a discussion on the price that different sectors of society pay for data usage pointed to the fact the poor due to established business practices pay far more for data usage than richer customers.
A smartphone for all
The second part of the discussion was focused on a new super cheap smart phone that MTN is about to release into the marketplace: The Steppa:
Arthur explains why the phone is so cheap, who the phone is targeted for and the actual capabilities of the phone. This section of the podcast links very well with their discussion on the poor and how they pay for data usage, as here we see a possible solution crafted my MTN that will appeal to a large group of consumers where a gap exists in the market.
