US teens love mobile video and SMS but don't talk much, says research

Nielsen has been looking through recent research to compare the ways US teenagers use their mobile phones.

It says today’s children watch more mobile video than any other group, with 12 to 17-year-olds enjoying over 7 hours of mobile video a month - compared to 4 hours 20 minutes for the general population.

Teens also out-text all other age groups; 13 to 17-year-olds deal with an average of 3,364 mobile texts per month. The next most-actively texting group, 18 to 24-year-olds, see less than half this number.

However, when it comes to talking, only the over-65s talk less on their mobiles than teenagers. Teens talk for an average of 515 minutes per month, while 18 to 24-year-olds talk for more than 750 minutes monthly.
