How Do You Use Your Cell Phone?

Monday, July 12th, 2010

Pew Research Center

In May, the Pew Research Center conducted a study about how Americans use their cell phones. Some conclusions were expected, while others were a surprise.  It wasn’t a shock to know that six in ten adults go online with either a cell phone or laptop with wireless internet connection. Also, it was not a shock to know that Americans have increased going online through their phone and using internet based applications (internet, email or instant messaging) with compared to last year’s data. What did surprise me was that 38% of this group used their phones to get on to the internet, while 34% played games on their cellular devices. I thought that more people would use their phones to access the internet. It was not a surprise that 76% use their phones to take pictures and 72% use it for text messaging. What do you do on your phone? Do you browse the web, take pictures, play games, text or use it to call people?
