uk-leaders-in-smart-phonesThose in the gambling industry have for a long time recognized that the firms who seem to set the best example to others in the industry are run out of the centre of the iGaming universe, London. Thanks to the, thought to be, best regulatory system in the business, North American states or provinces could learn a lot when setting up their own online gambling markets.

Of all the accolades the UK has received in recent times on the technology front, today’s news might well be one they might want to have as a tagline on @UK on Twitter.

Vodafone chief executive Vittorio Colao, today explained that the UK’s “digital citizens” were a lot more up to date with the latest technology than anyone in continental Europe. The figures are quite staggering.

Of the customers who signed up for a new contract with the telecommunications provider, 70% of those in the UK begged their providers for a smart phone. This figure was only at 40% on the continent, and clearly shows that the UK is the continent’s leader in terms of consumers wanting the latest.

This can only be good news for the gambling industry, which is aggressively pursuing mobile as an area of serious growth right now. This latest piece of news, coupled with what we told you earlier concerning tablet PCs, certainly continues the strong case for gambling companies to go mobile. Although yes it might be starting to grate on you all that we keep going on about it!
