SmartMobs brings us this: African Leaders Seek More Cell Phones, Computers.

"African leaders will launch a global fund to help people in poor countries buy mobile phones and Internet access as a step out of poverty and into economic growth, the president of Senegal said on Wednesday.

"There are more telephones in Manhattan than in all Africa," President Abdoulaye Wade said at a news conference held on the sidelines of a U.N. General Assembly meeting. ...

"The new fund, pooling voluntary contributions solicited from buyers of high-tech goods in wealthy nations, will be launched in Geneva on Nov. 17, Wade said."
