Tablet Use for Business Soars; Smartphone Addiction Continues Apace, Says RingCentral

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Fifty-one percent of SMB professionals would rather take their tablet with them when traveling than a laptop or PC, according to a new survey. RingCentral, the leader in cloud based business phone systems, today announced the results of their 2nd annual survey on smartphone and mobile device use for business. The survey showed nearly one in every three professionals surveyed (29 percent) owns a tablet. Tablet owners are heavy users of the device – 62% reported using the tablet multiple times a day for business. Primary use for business includes checking emails, visiting websites, and reviewing presentations.

In addition to the fast-growing use of tablets, RingCentral’s survey also revealed continued growth in smartphone use for business where smartphones and landline office phones are now tied 50/50 as the primary phone used for business. Smartphone addiction is also on the rise. Almost half of SMB professionals admitted they are addicted to their smartphones, resulting in some surprising behaviors: 58% reported they would take an urgent call in the bathroom; 49% said checking their phone was the first thing they did before getting out of bed in the morning, even before kissing their significant other or turning on the TV/radio.
