Blackberry Use Decreases Laptop Use

from the dethroning-the-laptop dept

A new study has shown that people use Blackberry pagers tend to use their laptop significantly less. This really isn’t a big surprise. I’m sure, for work purposes, a lot of people spend time logging in to take care of overflow email. The Blackberry helps you take care of those emails without having to use the laptop. The sample size is also pretty small for the study, so it’s in no way conclusive. However, the numbers in the results certainly aren’t small. What surprised me was the nearly 20% of people who completely gave up their laptop after getting a Blackberry.
