Google will come to developing countries via mobile phones

    Google Vice President Vinton Cerf, speaking at a conference in Bangalore (India), said that the future of the Internet depends on mobile phone users, not computers. According to him, despite the fact that the number of Internet users has grown to 1.1 billion worldwide, this is only one sixth of the world's population.

    The remaining 5.5 billion people who are not able to work on the Internet can hope that they will be helped by mobile access, which, incidentally, is actively gaining strength in developed countries - according to statistics, about half of the users have accessed the Internet at least once via cell phone.

    It is possible that Google through such statements seeks to expand its sphere of influence. Meanwhile, mobile operators are unhappy with the company's actions - they say that Google applications consume too much valuable traffic, writes Ars Technica .
