A few clicks and searches on Google led me to this excellent interview of Kiran Jonnalagadda a.k.a Jace conducted by Kiruba Shankar on why moblogging is not taking off in India. And if you are wondering who Jace is, he is one of the few mobloggers in India. The reasons that pop out from the interview are
- Technical difficulties in getting GPRS setup on one's mobile
- Lack of MMS popularity due to low critical mass of users
- The prohibitive costs of good camera phones
- Setting up blogs and access paths from your mobile phones to blogs.
- The associated difficulties of filtering out headers and footers that service providers attach to MMS messages sent.
