Cell phones, like the clothes we wear, have the ability to broadcast a powerful message about us. A recent study carried out by the Interactive Advertising Bureau on behalf of its members showed that depending on what we pull out of our jacket pocket the moment that ringtone rings we can be judged by our colleagues, friends and even those who casually happen to notice us.
Based on a survey of over 30,000 online users the following emerged:
Blueberry Pearl – Power player and heavy hitter. The cell phone of choice of the corporate junkie who takes the office with him. Mark of success and status item of corporate board climbers.
Palm TREO 650 Smartphone – up-and-coming businessman. Not yet a Blueberry league but definitely one to take seriously. Travelling salesmen and self-made businessmen definitely go for this one.
Sony Ericsson W600I Walkman – the phone of choice of party animals. This one is for those who cannot be parted from their music no matter what. A mobile sound system as much as a phone this shouts out that you are fun, fun, fun, ready to drop everything and play hard at a moment’s notice.
Motorola MotoRazr V3XX Grey – the traditional toy of the slick and the clued up. Take this baby out of your pocket and it screams nightlife, bars, parties and a knowing lifestyle that knows few limitations. This is definitely a lifestyle choice phone and the equipment of choice for bad boys and girls.
LG KE770 SHINE – The phone that straddles two worlds. Slick and sophisticated yet tough and rugged. Those who have this phone are men and women who are comfortable in most places and want to send a message that they are their own person choosing to be where they are.
Nokia 7370 TRIBAND GSM Cell Phone – This baby is the choice of echo warriors everywhere. Men and women who have this phone are more likely to respect the planet, recycle their rubbish and use text and email and digital storage over paper.
