TeleNav, the location-based technology company, is out today with results from a fun survey that demonstrates just how attached many of us Americans have become to our mobile phones. The big headline: One-third of all respondents would be more willing to give up sex for a week than their mobile phone.
Among the additional findings:
- Nearly 50% of respondents sleep with their phone next to them.
- 55% would be more willing to give up caffeine for a week than their mobile phone.
- One in five were more willing to go shoeless than phoneless for a week.
- 22% would rather give up their toothbrush than their phone for a week. (The number was 40% among iPhone users.)
Here’s a TeleNav infographic with more results from the survey, also showing how the responses differed among users of different devices.
