Despite America's iPhone Obsession, We're Behind the World's Mobile Calling Curve


For more advanced things like mobile commerce, the U.S. also ranks near the bottom among 16 countries included in the survey, which polled 4,100 people in Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Only 12.9 percent of users in the U.S. said they make use of mobile commerce services. In China the figure was almost four times that amount, at 49.2 percent. Across all of Asia, 34 percent of people surveyed said they use mobile devices for banking, versus only 13 percent in the United States. Asian customers are also more likely to make payments with their mobile phones than are Americans.  (Source: Daniel Lyons, Newsweek)
