Lending money rather than mobiles

MORE than one half, or 52 percent, of Slovaks would lend money and almost one third, or 29 percent, would not mind lending their car. But only every fourth Slovak is willing to lend a computer or a mobile. This is the outcome of the study called Mobile Life, carried out by TNS Slovakia, active in market research, global market information and business analysis. The unwillingness to lend money, cars, computers or mobiles increases along with age.

This is the outcome of the study called Mobile Life, carried out by TNS Slovakia, active in market research, global market information and business analysis. The unwillingness to lend money, cars, computers or mobiles increases along with age.

In the survey, 44 percent of respondents in Slovakia agreed with the statement that they feel lost without a mobile. This means that Slovaks are more “dependent” on mobiles than the average in European countries, which is 40 percent. Globally, more than half of the population say that their mobile devices are like an extension of their hand.

The sensation of feeling lost without one’s mobile is cited more often among Slovak women than men, while globally there are no gender differences.
