Cell phones: no longer something to talk about?

You know, it's funny. I have been thinking for some time that there is a paradigm shift in mobile phones. It's gotten to the point where I virtually never use my iPhone to make or receive a phone call. It's all about everything else. Texting. Email. Calendar. Web. Life.

So, when I saw Jenna Wortham's feature story in the New York Times Personal Tech section on Thursday, it really hit home.

Apparently I'm not alone in my phone usage behavior.

Text message usage is way up. And the length of an average cell phone call was 1.81 minutes last year, compared to 2.27 minutes in 2008. Interesting.
