Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos are areas that don’t get too much coverage in the tech press – but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t interesting phenomena in the way its web and tech scene are developing.

Across these three countries, mobile is proving especially revolutionary – getting people not just talking, but also online. It’s a situation we’re seeing, too, in India and Indonesia. Following that path, we’re likely to see Cambodia and Laos pick up social media, e-commerce, and gaming almost exclusively on mobile, not on desktop PCs. Vietnam’s infrastructure, though, fares somewhat better.
