10 Responses to How much do you Email via Smartphone?

  1. Max Cacas says:

    I’d say half of my e-mails go out by my Blackberry…

  2. As much as possible! Although it is mainly private mailing….business mail can not be done very good with Smartphones (e.g. attachements)…

  3. I agree with your point in regards to social network aggregation but don’t rule out tools such as Tweetdeck which can integrate your activity from Facebook/LinkedIn/Foursquare etc… into a very visually accessible format available on the Mac/PC/smartphone.

    As people become more familiar with the various benefits these social networks have over traditional email (which admittedly I don’t think we’ll see in the commercial world for quite sometime if ever) we could see the use of email start to decline.

  4. Smartphones are a great way to send and receive emails when you are on the go but I prefer to send Emails using the computer. That’s my personal opinion.

    i prefer to read emails on smartphone as most of the time i am away of my desk. Short mails are preferable to be answered thru smartphones but best way is to use computer only… always..

    Today smart phones are so cool and user friendly. Many times i use smart phones to reply to emails or even use it for browsing – when i m not @ my desk. I also use it sometimes when im @ my desk to check emails from other emails boxes.. which i have not logged in on computer – but on my smartphone ( e.g. Blackberry ) i have all my mailboxes configured .. so i get mails collectively in one inbox in my smartphone.

    But yes it important to understand it cannot be compared to a computer. If one is sitting in front of the computer.. the first choice for all activities is computer rather than a smartphone.

    Smartphone was never designed or planned to repalce the computer, the idea was simply to provide connectivity and Data wherever you are .. without carrying multiple devices like the PDA..

    The way smartphones are evolving . and with LTE to provide the bandwidth..future it is gonna be amazing.. people will no longer be required to glued to their seat..unless they want.

    the death of email has been widely exaggerated 🙂 like radio, tv and yes even newspapers (gasp) there is and always will be a place for all these mediums to connect people and the information they want.

  8. Email is still the number one method of communications and will remain so for time to come why, everyone has an email address and use them, it’s a way of instant communication with verification ability and it works. Social media networks will have their place but in the medium term at least email and mobile comms will rule

    • Sandra – that is not actually correct I am afraid. Email was replaced by social networks last year in terms of both the number of global users and minutes spent communicating. The number one global communication protocol is now clearly social networks and not email. Check out ComScore for the exact details.
