Android the favorite model of those who use their phone while driving the porcelain bus
Marketing agency 11Mark took a survey and found out that more owners of Android phones are using their handset while driving the porcelain bus. 87% of Android users have their phone in hand while taking care of business. And since it is business that is being taken care of, perhaps it is no surprise that 84% of BlackBerry users are guilty of doing the same thing. "Only" 77% of Apple iPhone users admitted to using their phone in the john.

Both sexes are guilty of this. 74% of men and 76% of women are whipping out their smartphone when the vacancy sign on the stall door turns to occupied. So what are people doing with their phones while in the loo? 75% of BlackBerry users are taking a call. 67% of Android users and 60% of iPhone users said they do the same thing.

Next time you need to borrow someone's Android, BlackBerry or Apple iPhone model, keep these statistics in mind.

Oh, find me someone who says that they don't use their phones while doing a data dump, and you have someone who has forgotten their phone outside the door.....

This survey is full of s**t!

Actually, I take that back. This makes complete sense. It shows that Android's superb multi-tasking capabilities, have been far better in making their users excel at multi-tasking as well.

That would be RIDING the bus. DRIVING the bus is what you might do if you had too much to drink. You know, you grab the big steering wheel...
