Mark Raby reports:
''Microsoft has started a new initiative that it hopes will make mobile phones more affordable for people in developing countries, in a move similar to the highly publicized "One Laptop Per Child" program.
The company already has a shell of a project called Fone+, which has been moving at a snail's pace since it was first unveiled a few years ago. However, with the technologies for under-priveleged countries coming back to the spotlight, it decided to move Fone+ forward with a vengeance.
The move comes as Microsoft's "Unlimited Potential Group," which focuses on developing nations, appointed a new boss.''
