The most recent annual survey on cell phone usage conducted by International Communications Research for AT&T in May 2007 indicates that women talk on the mobile phone almost as much as men in comparison with previous years. There is only 5 min difference in average talk time - 458 minutes for men and 453 minutes for women.
The poll was conducted among 1,006 people and also showed that 45% of the respondents often use text messaging, 44% use camera, 17% play mobile games and 11% access wireless Web and e-mail. The first three features are more often used by women, while men more frequently access the Web and e-mail.
Both men and women use their mobile phones more than home phones (455 minutes compared with 394 minutes). Women use wireless phones for speaking family and friends, while men mostly make business calls. Speaking of home phones, men talk less than women.
