(Persia Digest) - Results of a national poll showed that 69 percent of mobile owners in Iran use smart phones.
According to Persia Digest (PD), based on the poll conducted on May 21 and May 22 by Iranian Students Polling Agency (ISPA), 69 percent of people announced they owned smart (touch) phones.
Some 30.8 percent of respondents announced that they did not have smart phones and 20 percent did not answer the question.
The opinion poll was conducted by telephone with the statistical population (both in urban and rural areas).
Last year, Tehran Chamber of Commerce announced that the share of families using mobile (both smart and non-smart) has reached 96.6 percent.
This is while, in 2005 only 12 percent of the Iranian population used mobile phones. But with the introduction of credit SIM cards and reduction in the prices of permanent SIM cards, the use of mobile phones has gradually increased in the society in the following years.
