40 percent of mobile phone users would rather lose their wallet than their mobile device. Nearly all said they would be "devastated" if they lost their phone.
In a market that has recently seen new much-hyped smartphone releases from Palm (Palm Pre), Apple (iPhone 3G S) and Nokia (Nokia N97), research released today by mobile device management company Mformation highlights that the mobile phone is becoming increasingly central to consumer lifestyles.
65 percent of survey respondents store not just phone numbers but address and other contact information on their mobile handsets. 83 percent have digital photos, 51 percent have videos, 48 percent have calendar information and 40 percent have music downloads.
