This work challenges the fast and dynamic movement of new technologies in developing countries like Mozambique and places itself in the research field of ICT4D. The research was carried out as part of the ICT4DMZ1 project. The aim of this work is to empower people in developing countries through the means of technology and enable social progress in Mozambique. To do so, local engineering experts who better understand the country´s challenges are key to success. This work analyses the current technological constraints of mobile phones in Mozambique to further enable ICT4D projects. Since the ubiquitous technology; mobile phones can be found everywhere, it was used as the prime device in this study. In the past, several researcher underlined the potential of this technology. Mobile phones are easily accessible and are readily available in Mozambique.
