Only 39% of the seniors over 65 have mobile phones

New York Times quotes the research on seniors using cell phones. While about 80% of people 19 to 65 own mobile phones and more than 45% of those 10 to 18 do, only 39% of people 65 and older use them, according to the Yankee Group, a research firm. Moreover, older people who do use phones spend less money for fewer minutes each month than Americans under 65, the firm says.
