New Phone Directory is a concern for many people and printing industry
Herndon, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/11/2012 -- The arrival of the new phone book has threatened many people as well as the Yellow Pages companies, due to its lack of thickness. The phone book that Dublin launched this year is not even an inch thick now, because many people have started moving towards mobile phones. The importance of and preference for the landline is becoming less day-by-day.
Although it is good that people are becoming aware of new technology, they are also with the passage of time growing out of using older technology. They are moving away from what was previously considered to be the conventional way of doing things.
Many of the people who use mobile phones now do not bother to remember phone numbers, even if they have a landline number too. This point raises a new debate on what one can do in case a mobile phone is lost? How can anyone get in touch with their parents or spouse? According to statistics, people who use both landline and mobile phones prefer to share mobile numbers rather than their landline one.
This year the Dublin directory has removed many pages since it is 12 pages shorter than last year’s phone book and has gone under an inch now. According to a latest study carried out by EU Eurobarometer, statistics showed that every third person has stopped using landline related methods of communication and have shifted over to mobiles.
This survey is also very concerning for the printing companies too since they are suffering a lot due to this fact. Many of them have gone under owing billions of dollars in debt, whereas some of them have moved online.
Whereas the world is advancing rapidly, more people are expected to be moving towards mobiles and shutting down their landline numbers. The surveys and researches also show that the time is not far away when the landline phones will completely wiped from the residential sector and will only remain in the business and public sectors.
