小编摘要:手机数超过人口数?这或许听起来挺疯狂,在英国却成了事实。

 导读:目前英国的移动电话使用人群已超过7640万,这比全国男女老少加起来的人数还要多!据数据显示,九分之一的成年人拥有至少一部手机,拥有两三部手机的人也不在少数:一部黑莓用于工作,一部iPhone用于社交。移动电话已经完全掌控了现代人的生活。

The number of active mobile phones in Britain has soared to a record 76.4million – more than one for every man, woman and child in the country.

More than nine in ten adults now own at least one handset, figures show, while many have two or three, perhaps with a BlackBerry for work and an iPhone for social use.

Details on how the handsets – particularly smartphones with music players, games, cameras, internet and email access – have come to dominate modern life have been revealed by telecoms regulator Ofcom.

More than one in seven households relies entirely on mobiles and has done away with a fixed line for making calls. And one in 14 rely on them for access to the internet and emails.

Some 27 per cent of adults are smartphone users, with half buying in the last year.

The figures also show each handset is used for about 166 minutes of calls a month.

As the average length of each call is just 1 minute, 13 seconds, critics suggest people cut short ‘real’ conversations to communicate through text, email or social websites.

More children would miss their mobile more than their home TV, Ofcom found. And one in eight people say their partner spends more time on their phone than with them.

Ernest Doku, of comparison website uSwitch.com, said: ‘There were 76.4million active mobile connections in March – dwarfing the number of people here (62million).

'This discrepancy is down to the fact that some people have several phones – or that usage is approaching saturation point.’
