Some interesting things I learned:
- This is one of the target markets for the iPhone knockoff ($300 retail vs $800)
- You can make money in the Third World (Roshan telecom grew from 1 mn to 3 mn subscribers in 6 months according to this article. INSANE!!!)
- We need to invest in education and tech in the western world. Mobile banking is widely available in Afghanistan! This is how fast others are playing catch up.
