 You Are What Your Mobile is

New research has found that mobile phones say quite a lot about their owners.

Social analyst David Chalke says that people's cell phones can give an insight into their personalities.

"Twenty years ago when you said 'your phone', you meant the white Telecom commander on the wall in the kitchen, but it doesn't mean that at all now it means your social accessory," the Courier Mail quoted him as saying.

"People always used to say it about cars, 'you drive what you are' ... and now your phone (represents) what you are.," he added.

According to a research by Roy Morgan, most attributes differed between the owners of mobile phone brands.

The typical iPhone user thinks computers give them control over their lives.

"iPhone is the Alfa Romeo," Chalke said.

SonyEricsson users like a full social life and fast food.

Users of an LG handset are usually women aged 14 to 24, not mechanically minded and unlikely to have pay TV. "LG is the Kia," Chalke said.

Samsung users tend to be conservative dressers over 50 who don't like taking risks.

"Samsung is the Daihatsu."

Blackberry users are high-earners aged 35 to 49.

Nokia users are unlikely to be aged 14 to 24 and less likely to have played arcade video games in the past three months.

"Nokia is the security blanket ... it is the Toyota of phones," Chalke said.
