    Is there no one the proof reads and edits these articles? Stop writting articles on your smart phone and maybe your grammar and spelling will improve.

    “The Canadian industry is eveloving at a rapid pace..”

    I guess I am the other 21%. I love not taking my smartphone sometimes (switch the sim card into a regular mobile phone since I can’t T9 text for the life of me)! Often I would just take my book and journal, it is nice to get away from it all! 🙂

      totally misread the graphic, somehow I read 74% of cell phone owners have a smartphone. My mistake.

    How can 79% of Canadians not leave home without their phone if only 74% of the population own phones, or is that 79% of that 74%?

      “or is that 79% of that 74%?”

      It’s even less than that, it’s 79% of the 48% who have smartphones. Which I think makes it around 38% of Canadians (or at least of respondents to this survey) Sloppy journalism.

    Winds cheap unlimited plans made this possible, I can now enjoy my smartphone as much as possible without having to worry about my bill


    The other 21% are BB10 smartphone users

    Unfortunately you cant leave your house with a product that doesnt exist.

    In other news, 79% of Canadians don’t leave home without getting a****y r***d by the big three.

    Only 47% of Smartphone users are hooked to a data plan? I can’t see it being that low….unless they meant 47% of mobile phone users have a data plan (which would still be surprising, given the number of feature phones still out there).
