A third of UK adults now use a smartphone
According to OFCOM and this BBC report: BBC News - Third of adults 'use smartphone' says Ofcom report
That figure is quite a bit higher than I expected TBH, but it does raise the question about whether they are actually using it as a smartphone or just a flashy phone with a decent screen and a bit of internet connectivity. I hammer my phone utilising almost all of its functions from email, navigation searching, net access and coming in almost last, making calls and texting. The article does make referance to Facebook being the most widely accessed site on smartphones, which many use as their prime method of social contact instead of texting and email, and interstingly that teenagers like Blackberry's. I wonder if this is down to the built in keyboard (easier for Facebook etc.) and the fact that RIM are pushing their handsets hard with some good deals to be had on both contracts and standalone devices?
