Most Britons are irritated by mobile phone use in public but continue to do so themselves anyway, according to a new study by Intel.

People the world over find the use of mobile phones in public places hugely irritating – but more of them are doing it themselves, new research reveals.

In the study of ‘mobile manners’ Intel interviewed 12,000 people across the globe, and 67 per cent of European respondents said that people talking too loudly on their phones in public spaces was the thing that annoyed them most. The survey also revealed that 40 percent of respondents were guilty of typing in front on others. Britons, the Italians and the French, however, led the way in saying that mobile phones should not be used at the dinner table.

Use of mobile phones in public, however, was something the survey results indicated most people continued to do inconsiderately, even if they were not aware of it at the time.
