Forty-six per cent of Australian mobile phone users are now using smartphones, up from 31 per cent in 2010, according to a survey released by Telstra today.
The number is set to climb to 60 per cent in the next 12 months, and nowhere it seems is off bounds when it comes to hopping online.
Home was the most popular place to access the net on phones, with 86 per cent surveyed saying they had done so.
Trains, buses and ferries came in next at 59 per cent, with 56 per cent saying they had accessed the net in bed, 33 per cent while on the toilet - which Telstra calls “throne surfing” - and 11 per cent on a date.
The survey, conducted by Nielsen, surveyed 2827 people aged 16 and over from across Australia.
