It took a little time, but a comprehensive report on the Bangkok launch of teleuse@BOP4 results has been published in the Nation (Thailand).
The survey found that Thai users spent more than any other nationality on mobile phones, $93 on average compared to $50 or less elsewhere.
Most of the phones they bought had radio connections, while 14 per cent had a Web browser and 5 per cent had touch-screens.
Ninety-one per cent of the Thais said they’d used a mobile phone in the previous three months, up from 77 per cent in 2008.
More than 90 per cent of the urban users made regular calls, compared to 80 per cent in the rural areas. Interestingly, 90 per cent of Thai females had a mobile phone but only 80 per cent of the males, a proportion reversed in the other countries.
