According to a new IDC survey, more than one third of workers would would rather be stuck without their wallet, keys, laptop or mp3 player than their mobile phone.
Nortel used the survey to find out how many consumers were hooked on mobile devices and certain e-mail and social networking applications. They coined the term "hyperconnected" for workers using seven devices and at least nine applications for their work and leisure needs; and 16 percent of surveyed workers ended up classified as "hyperconnected."
China had the highest percentage of hyperconnected users, while Canada and the UAE were at the bottom of the list. We think seven devices is a bit too much no matter how (hyper)connected you are.
