Designing Appropriate Computing Technologies for the Rural Developing World

Tapan Parikh, an Assistant Professor at the School of Information, UC Berkely talks about creating user interfaces for micofinancing in rural India and outlines a set of user interface guidelines based on his studies.
Though still not the exactly the kind of guidelines I’m looking for, atleast it’s a lead. And it talks about the importance of the device and input processes as well.

I had also found this paper a couple of days ago. Tapan Parikh is one of the co-authors too
