Aussies 'clueless about 3G'

Where do they get this research?

Aussies are "still clueless" about 3G, according to a report by IDC.

Even though 3G - which enables users to make calls, watch video clips and browse content via their handsets - was first introduced more than two years ago, the authors behind Phone a Friend: Australian Consumer Wireless Usage and Preferences, 2005 reckon "the vast majority of Australians still have no clear idea about 3G mobile technology".

"As 3G was introduced locally more than two years ago, IDC's latest findings are discouraging but hardly come as a surprise considering 3G has been strongly associated with cheap voice calls in the past 12 months," said Warren Chaisatien of IDC Australia.

News of this comes at the same time as Aussies everywhere are coming to terms with being thumped by England's cricket team which regained the Ashes yesterday after 18 years. Which is nice. If you're a Pom. ®
