I read the article in recent "The wireless issue" of TIME ( http://techland.time.com/2012/08/16/your-life-is-fully-mobile ) and... what I experienced during my last year backpacking India was approved:

India is the world leader in multi-tasking their mobile phones.

Skipping digital cameras, MP3 players, boom boxes or eve desktop/laptop... the relatively cheap costs of cellular networks created a generation leap. Villages that never had landline phones or even electricity stepped right into the cellular era.

I keep a Youtube channel and find that most my Indian visitors watch the videos on mobile handsets.
