I was staggered when I read this report created by Carphone Warehouse and the London School of Economics that states that 51 percent of all 10-year-olds have a mobile phone rising to 91 % of children by the time they hit 12!
I knew it was high as I see most of Generation Y now with a mobile phone however this is great evidence to support that.
The other interesting fact was seeing that 11-17 year olds send on average nearly 10 texts a day whilst adults send nearer 4.....
Of course there are some exceptions ;)
