Women and youngsters are the two groups most likely to keep their mobile phones on them at all times, a survey has shown, even when they are sunning themselves on the beach during periods away from home and work.
A consumer poll conducted by Travel firm Kuoni found that 25 per cent of respondents to a survey would keep their mobiles by their sides while on holiday.
Given that the survey also found that 75 per cent of respondents considered holidays as important for strengthening (or in some cases ending) relationships, there is a high probability that persistent mobile phone use has far wider ramifications.
Over 2000 UK citizens took part in the survey, once again proving that mobile phones are a national obsession in this country.
With the cost of roaming on a downward spiral and data charges for mobile internet use abroad becoming ever more reasonable, the number of people who pack their mobiles along with their flip flops and sun cream can only continue to rise.
