When it comes to cell phones 63 percent of users say they have a very personal connection to their mobiles according to a Harris Interactive poll released by Ingenio.

The poll revealed that 44 percent of mobile users say their phones have improved their personal relationships. Sixty-six percent of women said that their cell phones were personal to them while 60 percent of men said the same.

Almost half of mobile phone owners (49%) use their phone for more than just making or receiving calls and 57 percent believe that in the next three years they will use their phones for more than making calls.

Women are more likely than men to use text messaging (38% women vs. 33 % men), and to take photos (27% women vs. 21 % men). Men are more likely than women to use their phone to check email (12% men vs. 7% women), access the Internet (11% men vs. 5 % women), and find information using a search engine (9% men vs. 6% women).

"There has been a lot of excitement and growing interest around the mobile space in recent years, and it appears that the consumer is finally catching up to the lofty expectations the industry has had for some time,"said Marc Barach, chief marketing officer, Ingenio.

"This opens the door for the adoption of unique services that only the mobile platform can deliver."
