This 2013 study is one of several by the Open Institute tracking trends in phone use. The study investigates whether Khmer-language SMS can be used as a tool for government and civil society organizations to communicate directly with Cambodians. It also attempts to understand if smart phones are or will become a key device for accessing Internet and social media. The results provide data on phone ownership, ability to receive SMS in Khmer, and the use of Internet and social media in Khmer. The authors find that almost 90% of Cambodians claim to own their own phone, and over 99% are reachable by phone. 29.5% of Cambodians (±2%) own phones that are capable of communicating in Khmer script. 22% of the phones examined were smart phones.
