Next time your wandering around the jungle and you can't get a signal for your phone, it could be because there is no wind or it's dark.

Motorola, Inc. announced that it has deployed a wind and solar power system to operate in Nambibia

Motorola is offering increased voice and data service coverage in rural areas of Namibia and is the first of its kind globally.

Implications - With fears that the rapid progression of globalization will put residents of less-industrialized countries in more debt and well behind those in the industrialized world, companies that seek to find ways to improve the lives of this marginalized segment of the population carry goodwill with socially-conscious consumers. Products, programs and campaigns that explicitly state the benefits for the Majority World can earn free publicity and consumer loyalty.
