8% of US Students Don’t Have Mobiles

A survey by Student Monitor, quoted by Newsday found that mobile penetration stands at 92% among US students and 95% among students living on campus.

So what’s with the 8%/5% who don’t have a mobile? Are they clinically dead or members of a strange cult which forbids socialising and dating?

What’s also strange is that while 85% claim to have sent or received a text message in the last month, 26% of those who hadn’t, wanted to. So errr…try sending one and you might get one back.

But what is clear, with the exception of a few weirdos, is that mobile is now more mainstream among America’s youth than a mainstream thing on Planet Mainstream.
