Cambodian People vs Camera Phones
/>
I happened to write my opinion about people and phone to the Cambodia Daily week ago. There have been something new to Cambodian mobile phone users in recent months, especially among young people. High feature phones today allow people to capture and view photo and video clip. In a sense, it is a good thing to record our beautiful world and have it in our palm. But, we also have to experience something new. Cambodia, a country where many traditional issues have long been respected, seems to move beyond. At least there are several cases of nude pictures of Cambodian singer, actress, and a young girl. Those photo have been sent around the country through wireless phones. This is not technology glitch, but human error. A popular actress was reported in the local news that she was a victim of a graphic designer. Her picture was computerized to be a nude star. Another girl of less than 18 years old was forced to take off her clothes. And the scene was captured as video clip and sent from one to another.

I have read about Information and Communication Technology for Development, ICT4D in short. In this stage, I think we are on the way to ICT4Destruction. People choose to pay more on entertainment than education.

Cambodia embraces cell-phone craze

Cambodia, a developing country in Southeast Asia, illustrates how cell phones are catching on, especially with young people, thanks to new technology, competition and declining prices. Only a small percentage of households in Cambodia have telephone land lines, partly because of high monthly fees and the lack of infrastructure throughout the country. But today, cell phones can be found everywhere in the capital city of Phnom Penh.

And another article: China lends Cambodia $30 mln for 3G phone network.
