Forget palm reading - people can now tell a lot about you just by your brand of mobile phone. AC Nielsen has published research outlining which kind of people are likely to buy what kind of phone:
NOKIA: family-minded; middle-aged managers; balance seekers; health conscious
MOTOROLA: under 24; fashion conscious; fun seekers; individualistic
SONY ERICSSON: ambitious young men; professionals; success-driven; individualistic
LG: favourite of mums; stay-at-home parents; success-driver; harmony seekers
SAMSUNG: young women; career-focused; success-driven; fun seekers
I'd have to say this information is amusingly accurate in some ways. I own a Motorola, even though I was over 24 when I bought it. I will admit though I bought it for the sole reason that it's one of those hot pink RAZRs. One year on though, I've been looking at getting a Samsung D900 - which apparently makes me a fun, career-and-success driven young woman. Hopefully I'm all these things - and it would explain why I've never found any of the LG phones appealing!
What then, dear readers, does your mobile phone say about you? Why did you buy it in the first place, and do you possess any of the qualities the AC Nielsen research suggests applies to users of your brand?
