I'm ok to use the concept of mobile devices instead of mobile phones. 
That said, i would like to make it clear that the key objective for me 
is to focus on currently installed base of devices, and to take 
advantage on mobile phones/devices which are in the field today, which 
are for now low-end phones in most places.
I believe that in some ways, if we consider mobile phones as a whole, or 
even cover a broader category under mobile devices, we might miss some 
challenges. using a low-end phone as an ict-platform, is not the same 
thing as using a smartphone. and i believe we will have to adresse this 
difference.
my personnal view again is that we have to see what is possible today 
right now, and what would be possible in the future. We have to pave the 
road to this future, but start from where we are today, ie what is in 
the pocket of the targeted people.
