Smart Phones, Devoted Users, Are they addicted? | Online Colleges [INFOGRAPHIC]

by Kristin Marino, Online Colleges Columnist, onlinecolleges.com

Smartphones are becoming an integral part of our lives, and not just for their capacity to make phone calls. Our smartphones have become our music players, our GPS systems, our photography studios, our link to breaking news, the way we entertain ourselves—truly they have become extensions of ourselves. Some might even say our smartphones define us, telling the world more about us than we even realize.

You probably have your own opinions about the different types of people who own an iPhone as opposed to a Samsung Galaxy or a BlackBerry. And what do you really think about someone when they pull out a flip phone? One revealing study found that over half of iPhone users tend to be optimistic about the future. On the other hand, the same study found that BlackBerry owners may not be quite so prone to such optimism. Does this match with your own notions? Are iPhone users laid back trend followers and BlackBerry owners driven, type-A personalities?

More importantly, where do you fall into the smartphone personality spectrum? Does your smartphone define you? If so, what is it saying about you?
