Do mobile workers prefer smartphones to PDAs

CIO Briefing (August 17) reports that road warriors prefer smartphones over laptops and PDAs, but is this really true or just a bit of spin? Reach your own conclusions!


If you read the actual article MOBILE WORKERS PUSH FOR SMARTPHONES you might feel the conclusions have been spun somewhat by Smartphone enthusiasts:

Smartphones: 64% say smart phones essential and 32% say helpful
Laptops: 63% say essential and 27% say helpful
PDAs: 34% say essential and 55% say helpful

The difference between Smartphones and PDAs is well within the limits of error - i.e. no meaningful difference so more accurate conclusions from this study might be:

Smartphones and Laptops are consided essential by about twice as many people as PDAs

Mind you an unscrupulous PDA marketer might try saying this study shows:

PDAs are consided helpful by about twice as many people as Smartphones and Laptops

But what do you think?
