Spb Software House announces the results of its Spb Pocket PC Survey
The results of the first "Spb Pocket PC Survey", a global survey for Pocket PC users, are out. The development company deemed the survey a success, with more than 10,000 users taking part in it. The Spb Pocket PC Survey will be conducted annually in September in order to see changes in the Pocket PC community from year to year.

All survey participants have been entered into a drawing to win either an HP iPAQ hx4700 or a $100 PocketGear software certificate. The winners are: Jim Castles (main prize), Martin Ruderisch and Jaroslav Salcer.

The average age of survey respondents is about 35 years, and it is no surprise that nearly one fifth of Pocket PC users have computer related occupations. The most popular brands are HP iPAQ [57%] and Dell Axim [15%]. Respondents have been using their Pocket PCs for an average of about 2 years. More than half of respondents have also used Palm devices before. The results of the survey make it clear that Pocket PC use is a "family hobby" - that is, about 40% of respondents said that other members of their family also use a Pocket PC.

An overwhelming majority [93%] of Pocket PC users also purchase accessories for their devices, the most popular are:
* Memory cards [83%] (the most popular are 256 Mb Secure Digital Cards)
* Screen protectors [60%]
* Stylus [40%]
* GPS [30%]
* Keyboards [26%]

The question "What do you use your Pocket PC for?" gives the following results:
* Organizer [85%]
* Games [64%]
* Listening to music [60%]
* Browsing the Internet [57%]
* Reading e-books [53%]

Only one seventh of respondents [14%] use their Pocket PC as a phone.

78% of Pocket PC users have ever purchased Pocket PC software. The most popular types of programs are:
* System Utilities [77%]
* File Explorer [56%]
* Office [55%]
* Travel and Maps [53%]
* Video [53%]
* Picture Viewer [51%]
