Mobile Phones – USA’s Biggest Time Consumer?

Do you really realize how much time you spend on your mobile phone? Probably not. Most of us have become so accustomed to using our phones that, at the end of the day, we don’t even realize just how many minutes (or hours) we’ve spent absorbing mobile information.

In 2009, online media was the primary time-absorber for US consumers, at a little over 4 hours a day. (Not surprising) In comparison, consumers said they used their mobile phones for just over an hour each day.

The big news here is that during 2009, every form of media consumption DECREASED, except for mobile phones.  Mobile phone use actually increased by 39%. That means you are turning off the TV, putting away your laptop, unplugging the radio…and playing with your mobile phones. (Stats courtesy of E-marketer.com)

So you use your phone a LOT.  We’ve already established you’d rather be using your phone than watching TV, listening to the radio or browsing the Internet. So where would you be if you lost your phone?

Let’s make sure we never have to find out.


With ZOMM, the world’s first Wireless Leash™ for mobile phones, you won’t ever have to worry. After pairing it with your phone via bluetooth, (no software or apps to download) ZOMM will alert you if you get more than 30 feet away from your phone. Sound like something you need to have? Visit the ZOMM online store to get yours!

Okay, now get off the Internet and get back to your mobile phone. We know you want to.
