Mobile phones have become an integral part of our lives ever since it was first introduced, right? This is further proven in a recent report that shows 69 per cent of Malaysians can’t go through a day without their phones.

In the report “State of Digital Lifestyles” from Limelight Networks, Malaysians are apparently ranked most addicted to their phones followed by Indians, according to NST. Do you guys agree with this?

FYI, Limelight Networks is a leader in digital content delivery internationally. They help customers towards better online engagement by helping them to manage and deliver digital content globally.

This study also found that laptops and desktops are the second most significant technology for participants from Malaysia because about 43.4 per cent confessed that they can’t survive a day without these devices.

On a different matter, 74.7 per cent of Malaysians prefer digital books (e-books) while 25.4 per cent of them fancy physical copies of books. In the survey, they recorded the highest users of e-books amongst ten countries. Not only that, Malaysian participants were also not fond of paid content and they are also the least likely to pay for online services, according to the survey.

On a side note, the survey revealed that Malaysians mostly surf the internet for music, movies or television shows and apps.

This report was put together based on data from 5,000 consumers aged 18 and older. They come from ten countries: Malaysia, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States. All of these participants, who have downloaded software or streamed online videos or music last month, were also asked how they used digital media and how technology impacts their lives.

Well, this is a pretty interesting report that focuses on how electronic devices are perceived and used in Malaysia.
