Gen Y Addicted to their Smartphones

YOUNG Australians are among the world leaders in addiction to smartphones, according to research to be released tomorrow.

The Cisco Connected World Technology Report of 3600 people, including 200 Australians, reveals the depth of the addiction under-30s have for their favourite handheld device, turning to it from their first waking moment to their last conscious thought.

In Australia, 76 percent of so-called Gen Y students and young professionals compulsively check their smartphones for texts, emails and social media updates, compared with a global figure of 60 percent.
