Men talk more than women

According to the July/August 2005 issue of Hispanic Trends magazine, an International Communications Research poll commissioned by Cingular Wireless found that men used their cell phones more than women. Men currently use their cell phones 35% more. Guys average 571 minutes a month, while women average only 424.

The magazine says that women seem to be the early adopters: 25% have cell phones with cameras, compared with 21% of men. Actually, I think this can be explained by the fact that many people want devices that do one thing, and do it well. Cell phone cameras feature an image quality far inferior to that of dedicated digital cameras.

At the end of the article, it states: “Conventional wisdom does get something right: women talk on traditional land-line phones 9 percent more than the men.” When will VoIP become widespread?
