Out of Office

Smartphones use doubles in 2012

More than half of Australian adults use smartphones, and their use doubled in the year to May 2012, according to a report from the Australian Communications and Media Authority. The report, entitled “Smartphones and tablets: Take-up and use in Australia”, also found a dramatic increase in tablets.

The key infrastructure drivers for this growth include the continued rollout of mobile network upgrades, growth in 4G coverage and the increased use of WiFi hotspots.

This is particularly significant for many Out of Office workers. The obvious beneficiaries are Digital Nomads, who can now find it easier than ever before to work from anywhere. But it also applies to many other types of workers, particularly those who travel for work or commute to work.
