|Australia's obsession with smartphones||07/07/2014|
|95% of Aussies own a mobile, with 37% of those owning a smartphone. Australia's Smartphone mania grows!|
We are a country filled with people that are glued to their mobile phones, and it is not surprising why when we think about how much we can use them for. 95% of the Aussie population owns a mobile phone and of those people 37% of us own smartphones. So why are we so obsessed with our smartphones, and could those of us that own one survive a day without it?
Gone are the days when we had to actually pack a personal CD player, a digital camera, a map and a newspaper into our bag if we were leaving the house. Technology experts have managed to condense a lot of our belonging into one easy to use device that fits snuggly into our pockets. This makes life so much easier than having to try and navigate a huge map whilst driving, or attempting to read a newspaper whilst on a busy train. Everything is now in one place. In this day and age, who has time to pop into the bank or rush to the supermarket after a busy day at work or uni? Now we can order our groceries and organise our finances (48% use a smartphone for online banking) using one small hand-held device. Life is a whole lot easier now that the smartphone exists.
So could we survive a day without our smartphones?
Probably not. Truth be told, we are a country full of smartphone addicts and we have become accustomed to being able to access information so easily. Sprout knows this and sells a huge selection of funky phone cases for a variety of models and brands. The statistics don’t lie and since you are probably using your phone every day you should dress it up in a cool new phone cover that will make it stand out from the crowd. We also sell a selection of cables that can help you transfer your data between your various electronic devices.
