The mobile difference

26 Mar 2009

Some 39% of Americans have positive and improving attitudes about their mobile communication devices, which in turn draws them further into engagement with digital resources - on both wireless and wireline platforms - according to this report. Mobile connectivity is now a powerful differentiator among technology users. Those who plug into the information and communications world while on-the-go are notably more active in many facets of digital life than those who use wires to jack into the internet and the 14% of Americans who are off the grid entirely.

The report finds that:

? 8% of adults use mobile devices and broadband platforms for continual information exchange to collaborate with their social networks;

? 7% of adults actively use mobile devices and social networking tool, yet are ambivalent about all the connectivity;

? 8% of Americans find mobility lighting their information pathways, but have comparatively few tech assets at home;

? 16% of adults are active conduits of content and information;

? 61% are anchored to stationary media; though many have broadband and cell phones, coping with access is often too much for them.
