Mobile Phones Deliver Millions of E-Books to Developing World | Mashable.com | Our Future is Now | Scoop.it

21 April 2013 | Worldreader Mobile has launched, giving feature phone users in the developing world with a 2G connection to read 1,400 books for free.  

 

Feature phones are omnipresent in the developing world. They're people's lifelines; they're where they get their access to payments and the Internet," Susan Moody, Worldreader's director of marketing and communications, tellsMashable. IPhones and similar smartphones may be buzzworthy, she says, but they apply to a proportionally small number of people. Five billion people are using feature phones that run on 2G networks.

This is helpful to understand some of these words floating around...like Crowdsourcing - raising money for small business/creative projects through social media. Perhaps school lbraries could take advantage of some new ways to fundraise through social media.
