Hand me downs spread technology

Business standard has a piece on second hand goods and how they form a part of purchases of lower income groups. Another type of second hand (not sales but) hand me downs, also play an important role.

Many of us, while upgrading our cellphones have passed on our old handsets to our parents, who would not have bought a cellphone on their own. Ditto for cameras etc. Hand me downs seem to play an important role in exposing a greater number of people to emerging technologies like these.
