This 2015 study is one of several by Open Institute exploring trends in phone use. The study examines Cambodian phone users’ knowledge, attitudes and practices in relation to Khmer-language typing, writing and search habits, and identifies the factors motivating them to use (or not use) Khmer script. It also attempts to identify changes and trends in the way Khmer-enabled phones are being used, including to access the Internet—in particular Facebook. Data is presented on phone and smartphone ownership, use of phones with Khmer script capability and access to internet and Facebook. The authors recommend the development of better text-prediction and input methods for Khmer script in phones to increase adoption.
