Android users are more likely to be slutty, it transpires – having more one night stands, signing up to dating sites more often and being more likely to have sex on a first date, according to a Match.com survey of single Canadian mobile users.

The figures are a dramatic reworking of previous research in the area that suggested that iPhone users were the most likely to be sexually indiscriminate - having the most sexual partners of all smartphone owners according to a 2010 OKCupid survey.

On the delicate question of first-date sex, the difference between smartphone-owning singles is statistically slight: 62 per cent of Android them say they’ve had sex after one date compared to 57 per cent of iPhone users - it's the Blackberry owners who stand out with only 48 percent saying that they have.

A clear take-away from the Match survey is that BlackBerry owners must be too busy, er, doing business, to engage in either dates, one-nighters or sex. Only 50 per cent have visited an online dating site compared to 58 percent of iPhone users, and 72 per cent of Android users.

Fifty-five per cent of Android users in the Canada survey said they had had one night stands – the most of any phone owners, apparently. We've asked Match.com for the stats on one night stands for iPhone and Blackberry users but have had no response.

iPhoners are the most likely to date a co-worker, with nearly a quarter saying they had an office fling in the past five years, perhaps because they all work in graphic design and don't have any real work to do.

BlackBerry owners are either more romantic or more decisive: with 67% of BlackBerry users say they have experienced love at first sight.

Anyway, daters of all phone types like email and texting. Seventy-five per cent of the Canadian singles in this rigorous survey think their love lives have benefited from email and texting. Though obviously their love lives haven't benefited that much because they're still single. Just saying.

Obviously high science was involved at all stages of the investigation: Kimberly Moffit - the Canadian psychotherapist-cum-"dating expert" that Match involved in the analysis of the survey – said that the results proved judging someone's character by their phone was even more reliable than looking at their star sign.

She has a masters.

“More so than zodiac signs or astrology, smart phones are the new way Canadian singles can decode their dating style and determine if they’ve met their match,” wrote Moffit.

We've asked for more data but sadly Match hasn't been forthcoming. However, their Singles in America report will be out later today. ®
