Cell Phone Differences Around The World

"Can you hear me now" takes on a whole new meaning when comparing mobile phone technology, markets, and culture around the world.

So here's the $1 million dollar question (OK....a little exageration there)....

Between America, Europe, and Asia....who does mobile phones better?

U.S. News & World Report takes a look at the differences in mobile phone use in these three different areas of the world, starting with simply what "we" call our cell phones and moving on to their most common use in each area.

The report explains that in Asia, the market is so dominated by single companies that operators can easily direct trends, and cell phones (called simply mobiles) are used there for everything from online banking to purchasing items from vending machines.

In contrast, Europeans move easily from one cell phone network to another using roaming chips and the issue of most concern is often the style and design of the phone.

As for users here in America, we’re more likely to use our cell phones for listening to music and playing games online.

This won't be helpful to users in Asia and Europe.....but anyone in the US can look up and compare cell phones (and everything that goes with them) via this free online resource:
