mobile Web in Africa 2010 banner

I’m delighted to see that the series of events called Mobile Web Africa, organized by Matthew Dawes from All Amber expanding all over Africa, with numerous dates and instances in south, east, and west part of the continent. As reported before, I took part of the first event last year in Joburg, and this was a very successful event. I was not able to attend the East Africa version, last February, but I heard from different participants that it was also a very good meeting.
I strongly believe that Mobile browsing will grow significantly in Africa, and a majority of people will meet the Web for the first time through their phone. We are still at the very early stage, bandwidth, devices, capacities, expertise and prices need to evolve to create an enabling environment, but it is critical to raise awareness among all stakeholders on the potential of mobile Web technologies. In that regards, all initiatives in that domain are welcome and it is great to see a series of conferences focusing on this technology. Therefore, the Web Foundation is very happy to support them.
