In Germany, the landed, the investigation on the eighth place, more than three-quarters of respondents (78 percent) own a Smartphone, 16 percent use a traditional cell phone and 6 percent not a mobile phone. Among the industrial Nations, Canada falls out of the range, where about 25 percent have no mobile phone.
