The Egencia/Expedia Mobile Behaviour Mobile Index, a global study of mobile-device-related behaviour and preferences among travellers conducted across multiple countries and continents, found that India (80 percent) leads in checking in with work at least once a day followed by Thailand (74 percent) and Mexico (65 percent).
The study was conducted among 9,642 adults across 19 countries aged 18 and above owning at least one mobile device by Northstar, a globally integrated strategic insights consulting firm.
About 29 percent of Indians check mails, texts or voice mails for 30 minutes daily, it said. The study found that Indians lead globally (at 13 per cent) in checking on work for more than 1 hour daily.
Further, about 74 percent of Indians seek free wi-fi in cafe or restaurant while on holiday. Business travellers use mobile devices to remain closely connected to their home or office, the study said.
Mobile devices are the top resource for navigation, for photo-taking and for staying connected to loved ones.
