Mobiles: In Search Of A Killer Application

Zdnet highlights Park Associates survey of most frequently used mobile device features.

The top 3 were:
- taking pictures - 42%
- receive location specific information - 25%
- watch TV - 24%
The survey results are based on some 2000 odd users – clearly sample size problem.Other interesting findings that has come out includes things like:
- browse the Internet - 21%
- voice communications - 21%
- remotely control home - 18%
- remotely monitor house - 16%
Mobile gaming does not find place – I am also curious to know which nation the survey covers- hope it is not restricted only to the US- Admittedly a laggard in mobile technology adaption as compared to Asia and even within Asia- Korea & Japan represent one end of the spectrum. Inclusion of Asia /Agewise usage segregation would have given a different set of results.
