Abstract: 
While the worldwide spread of smartphones continues, developing countries have become important markets for these devices. Smartphones' independence of landline networks qualifies them for communication and Internet access in rural areas of developing countries. Drawing upon rural Southeast Asian survey data, this paper provides probably the first empirical evidence for smartphones' contribution to households' income.
