[Chart of the week] Smartphones: Where do you read your news?

According to a recent report by Reuters Institute, 46 per cent of respondents who use smartphones to access news do so in their bedroom. Albeit other places are pretty popular too.

As the below chart shows, many people also browse the news in their bathroom – or rather sitting on the toilet (36 per cent). The smartphone becomes a truly mobile informational device when people use it to access news while commuting (42 per cent).

This basically indicates that the smartphone really is a constant companion we have with us no matter where we go.
