It pretty much goes without saying that people on the move would use a device that they can carry along with them on their travels. Unless the whole point of travelling was to get away from their inbox or they enjoyed the simple pleasure of carting a desktop computer around. So it’s not surprising to learn that three out of four active travellers take their mobile device along when they hop on a plane and jet off to some fantastic location.
