Dutch less attached to mobile phones

Wednesday 8 January 2014 | 13:48 CET | Author: Sanne de Bruyckere, Tine Niezink | Background
Two-thirds of the Dutch take their mobile phone with them when they go out, and many appear inseparable from their phones at many other times of the day. Nevertheless, dependency on the mobile phone appears to have waned in the past year, with the Dutch saying they have their phone nearby less often during certain activities. Smartphone users are more likely to keep their phones in reach than feature phone users, and iPhone users are especially attached to their phones, according to Telecompaper research.
