Besides the aforementioned big three, Samsung, MediaTek, Nokia and Opera are also contributing their bucketful to the tributary that is building up volume and speed with the passage of time. The operation began in August. Today it has entered an entirely new dimension. 

Especially, Facebook is really into efficiency for the Net. This is a necessary step in making the wonderful facility available at a reasonable rate to the rest of mankind. The technology needed to make the impossible possible is very complex indeed. And furthermore the shrinkage of costs for the sake of the poverty-stricken will require a lot of brainstorming and problem-solving by expert thinkers.

By understanding some of the efforts that have already been made towards this end, and the lessons learned along the way, we hope to inspire new thinking and approaches – and help move the industry forward."
