Safaricom will launch MMS or multi-media messaging in June 2005 – which will enable users to send messages that include images, audio and video clips from one phone to another or to e-mail.
- The service must be priced affordably to be of meaningful use.
- The price of mobile phones, which have halved over the last year, will now shoot up. E.g. a Nokia 7250 now costs 15,000, down from 27,000 shillings.
- Hopefully Safaricom have addressed the problem of undelivered messages. I.e. when an SMS fails to go through (especially international), you still get charged. Messages that fail to go through, should not incur charges.
- The government will ban the use of camera phones.
