|01/31/2007 Cell Phones
Part of Life
Nguyen Huu Truc's trusty cell phone has revolutionized
his small embroidery business — and his life.
When he bought his first mobile phone in 1995,
Vietnam had just one fixed-line phone for every 100
people, and cell phones were a pricey novelty. Communication
was difficult, forcing Truc to make time-consuming
trips to suppliers and buyers.
But these days, Vietnam has 33 telephones per 100
people — and two-thirds of the phones are mobile.
Now Truc can make calls on his cell phone from virtually
anywhere in the country for about 10 cents a minute,
saving him time and money and providing quicker access
