Bad Phone Habits: an Infograph

Advertisement

Today, to correspond with the US launch of Windows Phone 7, Microsoft has released an infograph resulting from research done by Harris Interactive on phone usage habits. Microsoft’s argument is that with Windows Phone 7, you can “get in, get out, and go on with life” thanks to the Start screen. By revealing data of our (sometimes obsessive) phone usage, they beg the case for the world needing a Windows Phone 7-like platform to save the day. The infograph reveals that 24% of people ages 18-34 have used their phone during a wedding, and less surprisingly, 55% of people of the same age use their phone while in the bathroom (admit it, you’ve done it!).
