How are you using your phone [poll results]

So, weekly I like to ask you all a question, and then tabulate those results (you can tell my personality right?  the guy with the data and tables).

Last week's poll was on "how are you using your phone?" something my wife suggested, and it's something that's quite interesting actually.

A while back on the other blog I had talked about going 'data only', and now with my work-around for Google Voice, it might be entirely possible.  In fact, if you went 'voice via data' or VOIP, it'd actually be cheaper.

But let's take a look at how you responded with how you use your phone:
Here's the data
Social Networking
30%
Other
All of the above
8.5%
Maps & Mapping
4.2%
Media
4.2%
19%
Emails (work or otherwise)
15%
Web browsing / 'googling'
13%
Keeping on top of things (calendar, to-do lists, financial tracking,etc...)
11%
Text messaging
11%
Phone calls
2%
Gaming
0%
Photography
0%
Work (document editing, diagrams, etc...)
0%


Here's how it looks as a graph!


So, again, it looks like 'data' usage is a bigger winner than 'voice usage'.

Now keep in mind, folks were answering for their 'primary' usage.  So I think that 6% who said 'all of the above' didn't get the point.  If you could just PICK ONE, what would you pick.  I'd like to see what they said.

Also, I asked what they were using for their main 'app' to accomplish said task:

Email
PDA (calendar, to-do, etc…)
Maps
Media
Social Networking
Text
Stock, Whatsapp
Web browsing / Googling
Other

Did I miss any?
