Hun Sen, the Prime Minister of Cambodia, recently called for a ban on 3G phones that are capable of viewing multimedia files. This came after a petition in the country asked for the outlawing of such phones because of the potential of downloading and sending inappropriate content.

They are afraid of the consequences it could have on an already morally corrupt country. Sen said, "We can wait 10 more years until we have managed to improve morality in society."Their first 3G network just started operations earlier this year, and access to these higher-end phones is very limited at this point. Unfortunately, impeding the progress of technology in this undeveloped country may hurt it even more.
