Mobile phone users not accessing internet


by David Allen

It is estimated that around seventy five per cent of all mobile phones are capable of accessing the internet, yet according to recent research by moneysupermarket.com only twenty four per cent of those people actually use their mobile phone to go online.

The figure is better for the owners of the Apple iPhone and the Google G1 phone, with around fifty per cent using their phone to surf the internet.

Around seventy per cent of mobile phone users are not sure about how they are going to be charged for using the internet, while at the same time they find it too slow to do anything practical.

However, out of those people who do use their mobile phones for accessing the internet, thirty five per cent do so in order to check their emails, while only sixteen per cent will use their mobile phone to access their social networking site.
