Upon Rising, 1 in 3 Check Email

I confess. I succumbed and now have a smart phone. It’s addictive. When the alarm on it wakes me, I can’t help but look at my emails.

Apparently I’m not alone. About one in three (35%) global mobile workers checks their email first thing in the morning before they do anything else, according to an April 2011 report from iPass.

Data from the “iPass Global Mobile Workforce Report” indicates another 17% check their email after getting dressed, 13.5% check it after having morning tea or coffee, 10% check it after breakfast and 8% check it when they start their commute.

That translates to more than 80 percent checking their email before they start the work day.

When do you check your email?
