A nice followup to my last post pertaining to smartphones, this HackCollege.com infographic comes to me by way of Peter Kim, and offers some perspective on the role of the portable phone in the lives of contemporary American students.  Granted, the sample is small: 200 respondents randomly sampled from several universities nationwide, and somewhat skewed in favor of females (approx. 60-70%). 

By their nature, infographics provide a rather superficial glimpse of current trends and behaviors, so take this for what it's worth.  Needless to say, while we might quibble with the numbers, for many youth, take away their phones and you take away part of their selves.
