It is a well known fact that mobile phones are more affordable than computers, require less infrastructure, do not require the user to have much technological knowledge or even to be able to read and write, and are easy to carry from place to place.
In the view of above scenario there are hundreds of mobile based technologies coming every day and there is no platform where such applications, gadgets, service delivery can get recognized. Realizing the need of creating a benchmark in best innovations of mobile applications, service delivery and mobile instrument, mBillionth Award has made leapfrog in recognizing and promoting mobile technologies for efficient governance, rural development and betterment of masses.
Currently, there is a huge lack of efforts similar to this- even though mobile & telecom market is already considered to be a mature market but the desired beneficial impact has not been leveraged out of this in enabling larger mass based services with meaningful deliverable. With initiatives like the Mobile Congress, which happens as a part of mBillionth Award South Asia Gala, this model is providing multiple windows of solutions under one roof with synergetic efforts, ideas, and approaches: Award & Congress with purpose.
