They also have a record of a condition of the unit they've repaired. Consultants and fellow business owners can literally work anywhere now. If you have your phone forwarded to your cell phone you can be out on the golf course and you can take calls from clients at the turn, if that's what you rally want to do.

In Africa small businesses advertise by putting a hand-written sign on a tree by the roadside listing the service they perform, and a cell phone number, and that's the full extent of their marketing plan. In Finland and Japan, cell phones are used to pay electronically for purchases, such as subway tickets and from vending machines. As more people get comfortable using their phones, there is a tendency to want to add more functionality, meaning people are increasingly using their phones to get email...
