Motorola sez: Aussies prefer SMS to Xmas cards

Susan Mernit

Christmas Tree Christmas card or holiday text message? If you live in Australian and are 34 year old or less, the answer mostly likely would be text message.  Yep, Aussies don't long for Christmas cards—according to a recent survey commissioned by Motorola Australia, 50 percent of all 16-34 year olds said they would prefer a fun holiday SMS to a paper card, and 70 percent said they planned to send holiday text messages. Of course, it also sounds like most of the under-35 Australians they talked with are super-big geeks—One in three of the respondents said they were taking their mobile phones to Christmas parties so that they could snap pix and text message with pals. (Note: Just don't go near the beach.)
