    As Guru of the subject i may not add much, you have clearly articulate the evolution of learning as it moved from 1.0 to 2.0. This type of learning is further accentuated with the presence of mobile phones that have yielded mobile learning. The African has fallen in love with Smart mobile phones and the Chinese has made the situation. The recent introduction of android powered phones in the Kenyan market has led to an increase of smartphone users. A good example is the Huawei Ideos.

    It is a relatively cheap phone, but has almost all the capabilities of a high end smartphone. Though this is welcomed by Kenyans, long time mobile phone manufactures like Nokia have been greatly affected with buyers seeing android as a more reliable alternative.

    Smartphones are able to do most of the tasks of a computer like emails, video calls and even online gaming. Owning a smartphone, if one is a business person can increase the effectiveness of the business is that important emails can be received instantly or important records can be stored on the phones for later reference.

    Smartphones also have the ability to load full web pages, therefore can be a useful research tools for students. The Smart phone may offer the the ultimate educational,health, security for Africa. Mobile phones are fairly distributed in Africa. I speak for Kenya and i want to believe the case may be replicable in most African countries including Somalia
