Mobile phones replacing MP3 players and calculators

Mobile phone comparison website rightmobilephone has published research that suggests which electronic devices the mobile phone is gradually replacing.

After contacting over a thousand mobile phone owners they discovered that 68% owned an MP3 player as well – but over half those people with two devices said they spent more time using their mobile phone for audio.

91% of people didn’t own a traditional calculator, with 8 out of 10 saying it was because they used the calculator on their phone instead.

In addition, 42% of the respondents didn't own a digital camera. Again, the majority said they'd use the camera on their mobile to take pictures.

However, satellite navigation systems and computers seem safe for the moment. Just 11% of people said they used their mobile phone to go online more than they did their PC or laptop – and 81% said they'd currently prefer a dedicated sat-nav device rather than relying on their mobile phone.
