Mobile Rising

The Pew published another new report on Amercans and mobile devices today. Loads of interesting stuff:
The Mobile Difference by John Horrigan (Mar 25, 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.”
Much like boradband vs. dial-up was in the past, “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.”
“- 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 for
– 61% are anchored to stationary media; though many have broadband and cell phones, coping with access is often too much for them”
