Two mobiles per person ...

I do not know about the rest of the world, but here in my home I already have 2 people who have two mobile devices - a phone and a blackberry - and one of them had taken an oath a few years ago that he would never buy a blackberry! Lol!! So I am not surprised that surveys are showing that a whole nation is edging towards the 2 mobiles per person phase. I would think that if surveys are carried out many more countries would find themselves in the same situation.

Britain is edging closer to becoming a two-mobile nation, according to the latest survey. The poll of 1,000 people found most adults have a handset, with only the very young and very old not owning a mobile phone. The average mobile phone owner now has an average of 1.8 handsets and the figure is expected to rise to two mobiles for every person soon. The rise in ownership is thought to be because more people have one mobile for personal calls and another for work as companies give employees Blackberry devices to keep in touch out of hours.
