Smartphones Cost as Little as 0.6% of Per-Capita GNI in Japan; 48% in Ethiopia

The cost of smartphones is very high in many developing nations, measured as a percentage of gross national income per person, according to KCPB partner Mary Meeker.

Where in Japan a smartphone costs about 0.6 percent of per-capita GNI, a smartphone can cost as much as 48 percent of per-person GNI in Ethiopia.

In Vietnam a smartphone costs 15 percent of per-capita GNI; in India 10 percent of per-person GNI. In other Southeast Asian countries, a smartphone costs six percent of per-person GNI in Indonesia, or five percent in the Philippines.
