Digital World and its Fragility During Covid

Earlier parents asked their children not to be “addicted” to technology, teachers punished their students if caught carrying or using a device in school or classes.

Adults are using technology for more important activities like working from home, doing online shopping for essentials as well as non-essentials because we miss “those times and those things,” from food to clothes to work-related things.

When Mxolosi saw a Tecno W2 smartphone in a store in Johannesburg, South Africa, he was attracted to its looks and functionality. But what really drew him in was the price, roughly $30 — far less than comparable models from Samsung, Nokia, or Huawei, Africa’s other top brands.

Since releasing its first smartphone in 2014, the upstart has grown to become Africa’s top handset seller, beating out longtime market leaders Samsung and Nokia.
