    From Beate:
    Please find below a link to new publication by UNESCO: Reading in the Mobile Era : a study of mobile reading in developing countries.

    http://www.unesco.org/new/en/unesco/themes/icts/m4ed/mobile-reading/reading-in-the-mobile-era/

    The report suggests “three broad strategies for extending the benefits of mobile reading to more people: 1) diversify mobile reading content and portals to appeal to specific target groups; 2) increase outreach efforts to create opportunities for potential users to experiment with mobile reading and learn about its benefits; and 3) lower cost and technology barriers to mobile reading” (page 75).

    And look out for a forthcoming publication, Reading without Books: 15 projects that leverage mobile technology for literacy in developing countries.
