Tidbits from Pew Internet’s cell phone survey

Check out Pew Internet’s survey of cell phone usage among different generations. It’s fascinating.

A couple of interesting tidbits:

– 63% of Millenials access the Internet on their phones (does that include Internet-using apps?)

– 42% of Gen X-ers do the same

– A whopping 91% of Millenials, and 76% of all adults, take pictures on their phones

– A similar number send or receive text messages

One thing is obvious – our phones are no longer phones. They are Internet-enable pocket computers and messaging devices. Would be nice to see pricing plans and regulatory policies that reflect this…
