Doomedo: Text the world

May 28, 2009

After Maelys (A very great project) Ti’ Aya has launched a new product named Doomedo to allow internet cafe users in Africa to text the world . 

I think it’s a good stuff…but i have to say it would be cooler if one can send the sms with the mobile phone.  Something like send sms to doomedo and doomedo send it to your contacts where ever it is.

Ok..Ok but how much would pay the users for this service. Because I think if someone buy an hour for internet connection to 300 F CFA. Buy SMS is an additional costs. How is he ready pay to send a SMS to his contacts worldwide. And How much would he pay to text from his mobile phone?

Some people would argue the connection’s time remains for a later use and it have not so much to do with the Doomedo service. But without the Internet cafe the user can’t use Doomedo.

The others would say send sms is interactive thing and should’nt be involve Internetcafe usage. But for we the BIG question is how much the users are ready to pay for this interactivity?

I don’t know what the business model for Doomedo is, it’s would be interesting to know how Ti Aya want to manage that.

“Despite the wealth of information that gets around, it’s sad that sometimes reality has a hard time catching up with perception,” said Dr Cheikh Modibo Diarra, chairman of Microsoft in Africa.

“I think that that perception comes from the fact that we are very successful because wherever we are, we are competing respectfully and openly; you can verify that everywhere,” he told the BBC World Service’s Digital Planet programme. more
