AvantGo, Inc., provider of mobile enterprise software, today released results from its 2003 Mobile Lifestyle Survey delivered to users on their mobile devices to determine their preferences, buying patterns, interests and activities. The survey sought to uncover trends among those who regularly carry and use a personal digital assistant (PDA). The study found that mobile device users in 2003 are mostly male, well educated and well paid with varied interests in sports and travel, for example.

"They are an elusive group for marketing professionals to reach - 25- to 50-year-old males - yet they can wield significant influence on the purchasing of products and services," said Neil Versen, vice president of sales at AvantGo. "This survey shows that My AvantGo, a proven marketing medium that literally puts information in the palms of customers' hands, has captured them and their buying habits."

Of those surveyed in the 2003 Lifestyle Survey:
  • 84% are male
  • 69% are between 25 and 50 years of age, with 40% between 35 and 50.
  • More than 2/3 are completing college, a masters or a PhD degree.
  • Over 50% half have an annual household income above $60,000, with a full 26% over $100,000.

    They are sports fans, watching football (51%), basketball (28%), baseball (23%) and NASCAR (13%), and on any given day you may find over 80% of them participating in outdoor sports, including golfing (19%), hiking (17%) and cycling (15%).

    They come from a variety of industries, and the majority of these PDA users own both their homes and their cars. However, nearly a third are in the market to purchase a new vehicle in less than one year. They travel for both business (with 12% averaging more than 10 business trips a year) and for pleasure (with 24% taking over three vacations per year). When they aren't traveling, they are busy using wireless services from a variety of carriers and a combination of their desktop and laptop computers to conduct online purchases of books (60%), PC software (56%) and CDs/music (49%). In the next six months, among the items they intend to purchase are new PCs, appliances and cameras.

    Of course, they all own a PDA that almost two-thirds purchased for themselves, while others were a gift or provided by their employers.
