The findings show that more than half of American wireless phone subscribers (56 percent) rely on their mobile phones for features such as cameras, clocks, calendars, messaging, music and as a substitute flashlight for seeing in dark places. Nearly two-thirds of respondents (63 percent) said they would use their wireless phone to retrieve maps or directions. Cameras remain popular with wireless users, with 55 percent expressing interest in the product. Walkie-talkies and ring tones are also popular with consumers, each cited by 48 percent and Internet access garnered 43 percent interest."</i><br /><br />I have to admit that I use my SP5m as a flashlight almost every night. It's not one of those features that get listed on the box, but it just works so well. :D Anyway, I found this to be an interesting study. Mainly because it actually deals with US consumers and not some other country (as per most of these studies), and also it shows that some people out there actually like their camera phone! ;) :lol:
