Maybe, but I don't see any one company being able to handle the growth. South America, Russia, China, India, and those countries just getting involved. In 2008, Nokia is predicting 1b cell phone sales in China for all oems. India is just starting. A $30 cell phone opens the doors for alot of the 3rd world countries. The monthly charge is another thing. Low hanging satellites might be cost effective, if their govts. get involved.
