A new study on mobile Internet

Rich Ling from mobile-society has just informed us of a new mobile phone - Internet study:

'There was a study done on accessing the internet via mobile phones that has come out. Here are some of the news articles covering the report.

The big news seems to be that about a quarter of mobile phone users have accessed the net via their mobile terminal. In some places it is as high as 40%.

One of the issues here is the blurring of SMS and email. In know that in imode that boundary is quite blurred, but in the GSM world SMS and email have each had their separate but parallel lives. IM is also being thrown into the mix. It might be interesting to really map out all the text based interaction possibilities for the mobile phone/PC equipped individual.

Thanks Rich!
