Chinese Stores Sell Phone Time

Chinese Phone ShopWe’ve talked a lot on NextBillion about the selling and re-selling of mobile phone minutes, whether its the phone ladies of Grameen Telecom or the sari-sari street merchants of Smart Communications.

Check out the picture, nabbed from Flickr via Kevin’s blog.
