Wilson Electronics, Inc. sent us this interesting (rather large) infographic outlining the demographics of cellphone use (click for full version).
The infographic illustrates, among other things, the number of cellphones per capita in various countries, the rate of cellphone adoption in the U.S. during the past decade and the acceptability of certain behaviors regarding cellphone use.
According to the infographic’s sources, there are nearly two cellphones for every one person living in the United Arab Emirates (1.95 to be exact) and Estonia (1.94). By comparison, there are .87 cellphones per person in the U.S. China has the greatest number of cellphones within its borders (640,000,000), followed by the U.S. (270,000,000).
In addition, 15% of Americans take phone calls during sex, according to a survey (although 6% to 10% think it’s acceptable, according to another survey), and three in 10 Americans used a cellphone in 1999, versus nine in 10 a decade later.
