Fragmentation vs. Obsolescence In the Android Ecosphere

codecracker007 A world outside US (315 comments)

App developer should realize that there is a world outside the US [and Europe], where:
1. Phones are sold unlocked more as a rule than an exception.
2. Enthusiasts change phones frequently
3. There is a big market for cheaper and second hand/older gen. 'smart' phones.
Android fits in well for these market. This is also the exact reason for the abysmal sale of iPhone 3G/3GS in India and China.

India Hanging Up On 25 Million Cell Phones

codecracker007 Obvious Missing Details (103 comments)

The article sadly doesn't seem to point the Government efforts to provide the non IMEI mobiles with a valid IMEI number. For the last few monthes, a person could have taken their el-cheapo Chinese phones to a designated centre and get a genuine IMEI number 'installed' on the phone for a sum of INR 199 [USD 4]. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/jaipur/Chinese-mobile-handsets-to-get-Indian-identity/articleshow/5286535.cms

World's Cheapest Car Goes On Sale In India

codecracker007 Re:And will be unavailable anyplace else.... (571 comments)

1) car insurance is compulsory in India, covers the car, not the driver. Takes care of damages to the car as well as to the victims.
2) Safety standards exist, albeit for the typical India roads where the speed limits rarely exceed 50 km/hr [convert this to m/hr yourself , please].
3) Nano is compliant with Euro 4, the present European emission standards.
4) Gross mis-information, smacks of ignorance at best and racism at worst.
5) ....thus spoke the western overlord..go back to your bullock cart...you deserve not what you hath not?

and well the price of petrol [gasoline] has been hovering around the $4/gallon mark for last 4 years in India.

codecracker007 (789100) writes "The Government of India is planning to introduce free 2 mbps broadband for all resident Indians by 2009. The expected service shall be launched by the government owned telecom operators BSNL and MTNL. Quoting from the article:
The government proposes to offer all citizens of India free, high-speed broadband connectivity by 2009, through the state-owned telecom service providers BSNL and MTNL. While consumers would cheer, the move holds the potential to kill the telecom business as we know it.
Here is an an editorial comment on the news. It must be mentioned that the Indian government and its autonomous regulatory bodies are very proactive in holding the consumer interests above the operators', managing to reduce the long distance and wireless tariffs by a up to factor of 20 in less than 7 years."
