87% of smartphone users sleep with their BlackBerry


Sleeping Lady

After eating, sleeping and showering with my BlackBerry Bold while in San Francisco for CTIA, this news isn’t much of a surprise. A new survey by Sheraton Hotels indicates 87% of smartphone users bring the devices into their bedrooms, and 84% check them before going to bed and as soon as they wake up.

While one may chalk these statistics up to the growing number of people who use their as their primary timekeeping device (thank you, Bedside Mode), the omnipresence of BlackBerrys in our life can be startling.

Eighty-five percent of business travelers say they sneak a quick peek at their personal digital assistants if they happen to wake in the middle of the night, and 80 percent check their e-mail before they’ve had their morning coffee, the new study by Sheraton Hotels found.

More than a third of those surveyed – 35 percent – said if forced to make a choice, they’d stick with their PDA over their spouse, and 62 percent said that they love their little high-tech companions.

Does this survey represent the average BlackBerry user? The survey questioned 6,500 professionals who make more than $50,000 a year, take two or more annual business trips and have a BlackBerry or mobile e-mail device. Post a comment and let us know if you fall into that demographic, and where you take your BlackBerry.
