pocket.at, a German speaking PDA portal (frequently visited by Austrians and Germans), had an interesting poll in January* about the communication features used with Pocket PCs and the results are quiet amazing but confirms what Europeans think about Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. While in North America, Bluetooth is still not established and often predicted to fail while for Europeans it's even more important than Wi-Fi:

WAN Services with Pocket PCs:

  • Importance of GPRS
    • Necessarily 47.78 %
    • Optional 38.91 %
    • No 13.31 %
  • Importance
     of 3G/UMTS
    • Necessarily 12.63 %
    • Optional 50.51 %
    • No 36.86 %

LAN/PAN Services with Pocket PCs:

  • Importance
     of W-LAN (Wi-Fi)
    • Necessarily 68.94 %
    • Optional 25.60 %
    • No 5.46 %
  • Importance
     of Bluetooth
    • Necessarily 85.32 %
    • Optional 12.97 %
    • No 1.71 %

Usage of Internet Services with Pocket PCs:

  • Pocket Internet Explorer
    • Yes 92.83 %
    • No 7.17 %
  • Inbox/E-Mail
    • Yes 81.91 %
    • No 18.09 %
  • Messenger
    • Yes 17.41 %
    • No 82.59 %

*293 Participants

Now I wonder where you come from and if you can confirm the results above to fit into your personal usage pattern? I find myself in the results above.

Cheers ~ Arne
