Mobile phone usage report 2011: The things you do - read the full textA few weeks back we asked some questions to find out how you, our readers, are using your phone. Now we are back with the answers and they have some pretty interesting stories to tell. Did you ever wonder what kind of phone usage is normal? We seem to have a pretty good idea...

Been waiting for this for quite a while, only to find out today that it's been out all along, splendid! Btw it seems Europeans don't need their phones for anything, could well do without them but for the calls - oh, I forgot that's what phones are for in the first place.

For example, if just 10 people responded from Europe, and 9 of them claim they use a particular feature everyday, then it would still be assumed that 90% of Europeans use the feature daily, and that's what would be reported. In other words, the numbers don't matter, it's the percentage (proportion) we're after here.

Great Job! Is there a vector based version, e.g. as PDF of the picture from page 2 available? I would like to make a printout, but image size is not enough. Thanks in advance for your help!

"Unsurprisingly, itís the under-18 age group that use their handsetís calculators the most. What we canít quite figure out is why Asians are using this feature so much more than Europeans."

LOL, it's because Asian concerns so much about number and their natural behavior is "trading". no wonder calculator plays an important role.
