Do you use, or want to use a Smartphone?

11% of survey complete.

Dear (prospective) Smartphone User,
We are conducting an international study to understand how you – as a professional – use Smartphones or would like to use Smartphones. Smartphones are mobile phones that operate on a Smartphone platform, like iPhones and Blackberry devices, as well as phones running the Android, Windows or Palm operating systems.

Involving both Australian and Indian academic institutions, the findings from this study will provide an international understanding of how professionals from these two nations use Smartphone technology.

We would like to invite you to participate in this voluntary study by completing a confidential and an anonymous online survey. The survey is expected to take approximately 20 minutes of your time. However, should you wish to complete the survey at different times, kindly access the website address again and you will return to the item that you completed last.

You are not expected to benefit by participating in this study, and the study will not involve any discomfort. Although you can revoke your consent at any time, it will not be possible to extract and destroy your survey responses, given the anonymous nature of the survey. Please note that the minimum retention period for data collection is five years.
