Do you take your smartphone to the bathroom with you?

Most Canadians do according to Rogers survey of Canadian technology trends and predictions. Canada’s largest mobile operator surveyed Canadian smartphone and tablet users to find out what you’ve been up to in 2012, and to get a sense of where you think we’re heading in 2013 and beyond. Check out Rogers Innovation Report infographic below to how you compare to other Canadians when it comes to some of the more common “Day in the life” statistics. From taking your smartphones to bed (51%) and to the bathroom with you (83%), to enjoying your erotica on e-readers and tablets (10%) to streaming Gangnam Style on your devices (43%), 2012 clearly showed that technology has become an integral part of our lives. Why, some might even say we’re a nation of Nomophobes! *

Nomophobia : noun. A state of stress caused by having no access to or being unable to use one’s mobile phone.
