Bottom of the Pyramid and Technology

The world has become a global village - communication and information usage has become important for all tiers of the economic pyramid.

The bottom of the pyramid consumers are aware of emerging technologies in developed countries and yearn to have such technologies at their disposal to enable them produce or provide services.
MNCs (MTN, Zain, Airtel etc.) who have ventured into the bottom of the pyramid market in the last decade can testify that the opportunities that abound in that market are enormous.
