Texting may be a priority when buying and selling mobile phones
6 September 2010 — 4:02 PM
People who sell old mobile phones and replace them with newer devices may be prioritising the text message features of any potential purchases.
New findings by Pew Research show the amount of adults sending and receiving texts has risen from 65 per cent in September last year to 72 per cent in May 2010.
However, this still does not make texting as popular among the adult population as it is with teenagers, as 12-17-year-olds are said to send five times as many messages on average.
The median number for adults is ten texts per day, while the younger users in question are said to receive more than 50.
With so much emphasis on texting, bearing in mind how easy it will be on various models, designs and keypads may be wise when buying a new handset.
A recent poll carried out by the Nokia Conversations blog found consumers could not be split on their preference for either a touchscreen or traditional keyboard.
