Why India’s Smartphone Revolution Is a Double-edged Sword
Very interesting Knowledge@Wharton article.
The explosion of affordable smartphones is converting three new users per second !!! For most of them, “the smartphone is their first camera, first TV, first video device, first Walkman, and first MP3 player. It may even be their first alarm clock and calculator,”.
This tsunami is having a significant impact on India's culture. The smartphone has tremendously accelerated India’s access to the internet with all the benefits that go with it (education, literacy, services...). However, the dangers are numerous too (fake news, false perceptions, porn...).
What do you think?
