Results of the Second Annual Spb Pocket PC Survey Available
Spb Software House has released the results of the second annual Spb Pocket PC Survey, a global online survey for Pocket PC users.

This year Spb was able to compare the results of the two surveys and understand what changes are occuring within the Pocket PC community.

Spb Software House points out that that this survey shows the image of an average "Pocket PC community user", a user who has access to the Internet and visits Pocket PC related web sites and forums.

The average age of survey respondents is about 33 years, which is two years less than the previous year. Occupation has not changed much, but more students are among the active Pocket PC users.

The most popular Pocket PC brands are, again, HP iPAQ [29%] and Dell Axim [24%]. Respondents have been using their Pocket PCs for a little bit longer than 2 years and more than half have previously used Palm devices.

An overwhelming majority [94%] of Pocket PC users have purchased accessories for their devices, the most popular being:

  • Memory card [85%]. The most popular are 1GB Secure Digital Cards. The average card size is 1.16 GB (!), compared with 341 MB last year!
  • Screen protectors [69%]
  • Cases [63%]
  • Stylus [40%]
  • GPS [36%]

    The question "What do you use your Pocket PC for?" gave the following results:
  • Organizer [85%]
  • Browsing the Internet [70%]
  • Listening to Music [69%]
  • Games [65%]
  • Emails [64%]
  • Using the Pocket PC as a phone grew from 14% to 36%

    In fact, phone functionality is considered to be much more important than a year ago. When choosing a Pocket PC device, 16% of respondents said they pay attention to the phone functionality (only 6% last year), which makes this the second most important characteristic.

    77% of Pocket PC users have ever purchased Pocket PC software. The most popular types of programs are:
  • System Utilities [82%]
  • File Explorer [67%]
  • Video [66%]
  • Office [57%]
  • Travel and Maps [54%]
  • Picture Viewer [54%]
  • Music [52%]
